TOKYO - Anatoly Stolbikov emerged from a health checkup at Kitazato University’s Kitazato Institute Hospital in Minato Ward, Tokyo, with a satisfied look on his face.

"The examinations took only a short time, and I felt no discomfort. I had no problem talking with the doctors, either, as I had an interpreter," said Stolbikov, 56, from the Russian Far East city of Khabarovsk. "I’ll tell everybody what Japanese hospitals are like when I return home."
