An inquiry was made about medical insurance.
After discussion with the committee members today, it was decided that we will provide medical insurance of up to 10 million yen for the duration of the artist-in-residence period.
Therefore, we think we can manage most injuries and sudden illnesses during your stay in Hirono as invited artist.
There is also a large hospital in the neighboring city of Iwaki.
But friends, we probably won’t be able to handle cavities, so please get your teeth fixed before you come.
Please note that the medical insurance we will provide is only for the duration of the artist-in-residence period, so if you wish to stay in Japan for a while after (or before) the artist-in-residence period, you will need to purchase your own insurance again.
