Hoshino Resorts in Japan offers free travel medical insurance for overseas guests

International tourism is finally resuming with Japan set to reopen its borders on Tuesday October 11. While there’s lots to be excited about, tourists still need to be cautious as it can be difficult to get medical help in a foreign country – especially with the ongoing pandemic.

If you don’t already have travel insurance for your trip, Hoshino Resorts is now offering free travel medical insurance for international guests staying at its properties in Japan, including its Kai, Risonare and OMO brands. Known for its luxury accommodations throughout the country, Hoshino Resorts has properties in the most stunning locations, from a seaside retreat in Beppu onsen town and a modern ‘glamping’ resort in Kawaguchiko overlooking Mt Fuji to a snowy ice village and hotel in Hokkaido.
