Waiting area … Machiai-shitsu

The first area that you walk into in the hospital is usually “waiting area”.

There are couches, chairs or benches for you to sit on while you wait.

1There might be TV, magazines, newspapers, and book for your entertainment somewhere in the waiting room, too.
Skim through them, and enjoy what you see!
They are not for you to take home, so make sure to put them back when you are done.

There might be vending machine or water/drink server.
They might be for cheaper price or even free of charge!

 

Since people in Japan don’t usually interact very much with each other in hospital’s waiting area, the waiting room is usually pretty calm and quiet.
People might not be feeling well, so be mindful of that too.

Many people take their books to read or their computer or smartphone to work while they wait.

Patients are there waiting for their turns to be called in for consultation with their doctor.
Relax and entertain yourself until your name is called out.

【要約】
医療機関で、一般的にドアから入って最初のエリアが待合室になっています。椅子やベンチ、ソファーなどがあり、雑誌、TV、書籍などもあるでしょう。医療機関によっては、ウォーターサーバーがあったり、自動販売機が置いてあるところもあるようです。
日本の病院の待合ホールでは、患者通しがおしゃべりをすることはあまりなく、比較的、静かで落ち着いた空間となっています。本を読んだり、スマートフォンやパソコンで作業をしている人も多いでしょう。診察に呼ばれるまで、リラックスして、好きなことをして待ちましょう。
