I know this might not be best posted here, but I am at a loss of where to go and have known this community to be extremely helpful with most things Japanese. I am a Registered Massage Therapist in Ontario, Canada, and was wondering what the massage education requirements (or if there are any) in Tokyo, Japan. I have gotten in touch with the embassy of both countries and neither has anything to tell me. Does anyone have any information on massage in Japan and whether it is a regulated health profession or not? In Ontario, 2 years of schooling is required as well as $1200 worth of board exams and testing to achieve certification. It is heavily regulated here.
Thank you in advance to anyone who has any information, and my apologies if this is not the correct place to post this. m_ _m
