Consulate of Russia in Japan

The Land of the Rising Sun is safe for foreigners, but still do not forget that any kind of emergency can happen to anyone. For example, loss of documents, theft, traffic accident, natural or man-made accidents, etc.

Employees of embassies and consulates will become reliable helpers in such troubles, because their duties include assistance in ensuring the protection of the rights of their citizens.
