About Find A Doc, the health database for Japan's international community


From idea to health database

" Watch our daughter, I gotta make something. "

LaShawn Toyoda had enough about the lack of clear information regarding the vaccine rollout in Japan from governing officials. A few hours later, Find a Doc was born.

This database aims to help keep the international community of Japan informed about critical healthcare services in Japan.


A team of volunteers

" You can fill the void by citizen action. "

Find a Doc is community-driven with the support of a team of volunteers. Currently, the team is focused on keeping the international community of Japan informed about clinics offering waiting lists for vaccinations to reduce waste.

In the future, we want Find a Doc to help non-Japanese speaking residents of Japan find clinics that offer services in their native language.
