Dr. Miura (around 60 yrs old?) studied at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland (USA). My daughter found him while researching pancreatic cancer on the internet. She called Johns Hopkins and they told her about Dr. Miura in Saitama Prefecture. He specializes in treatment of cancers in the liver, kidney and related organs. He can provide patients with access to techniques otherwise not yet practiced in Japan, but which are already widely used in the USA and parts of Europe such as Regional Celiac Artery Infusion (CAI).
You do not need a letter of introduction to see him.

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a Colposcopy done, preferably in the Chubu/Kansai area (I live in Aichi but am willing to travel to Tokyo if I must). I am in remission for Cervical Cancer and my Gyno in Canada insists that I must have a colposcopy every 6 months for the next 2 years before I can "breathe easily" Any help would be greatly appreciated. I tried to translate Colposcopy into Japanese and came up blank so I can't even ask my husband or his family for help. Thanks so much

Colposcopy in Japanese is コルポスコピー "koruposukopii". I would start my inquiry at the National Cancer Center (Tsukiji, Tokyo) to see if they can recommend someone competent in your area (here is the home page in English http://www.ncc.go.jp/index.html). However, you may wish to be examined at the Center itself, in which case you will need a referral from your local doctor.

I think Aichi cancer center is better/closer for starting point maybe. Please check the home page. http://www.pref.aichi.jp/cancer-center/
