Before visiting Japan to Dive, we suggest you join your local region DAN(Divers Alert Network).
They are in coordination with DAN Japan to assist you while you are n Japan. Better to recieve expert advice and assistance in regards to diving related incidents. Depending on the region you join, we believe they may have the right insurance for you.

International DAN (IDAN) is comprised of independent DAN organizations based around the world that provide expert emergency medical and referral services to regional diving communities. These local networks have pledged to uphold DAN's mission and to operate under protocol standards set by the IDAN Headquarters. Each IDAN organization is a nonprofit, independently administered organization. Each DAN depends on the support of local divers to provide its safety and educational services, such as emergency hotlines. In addition, each country has its own rules and regulations regarding insurance. Each regional DAN is cognizant of the insurance regulations of its territory.
