Charles in Chigasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, needs to visit a podiatrist (chiropodist in British English) to have a callous scraped.
He wants to know where he can find a real podiatrist that takes Japanese health insurance.
Podiatry is not recognized as a speciality in Japan. For foot problems, people go either to an orthopedic surgeon ("seikei geka") for bone and joint problems, or a dermatologist ("hifu-ka") for skin problems.
At present there is only one known non-Japanese podiatrist in Japan.
Qualified French foot specialist Josselyne Gourret works privately from a clinic attached to her home in Meguro. She can be reached on (03) 3495-6170. Speaking fluent English and Japanese, she also sees patients at the Tokyo Surgical Clinic every Wednesday morning.
Possibly worth emailing her for more information.
