Tokyo Metropolitan Hiroo Hospital Eases Visitor Restrictions

We have been temporary restricting visitors to our hospital to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Due to the recent circumstances, we are easing visitor restrictions,

beginning Monday, March 6, 2023.

Note that the current visitor restrictions continue to apply to our COVID-19 inpatients.

Visiting Hours: 14:00 – 16:00/2 pm – 4 pm on Weekdays, Weekends and Holidays

Designated Visiting Places: Inpatient Wards (Single rooms, Shared rooms and Day rooms)
When visiting a shared room, a patient and his/her visitor must stay inside the pulled bedside curtain. No visitation is allowed outside the hospital wards.


  1. Visitors must be the patient’s family or their equivalents. However, anyone who falls under any of the following is NOT permitted to visit the patient.
    * Is currently infected with COVID-19 or has similar symptoms of COVID-19,
    * Has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and also had symptom onset within 10 days.
    * Has been in close contact with someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection within 7 days.
    * Is currently waiting for COVID-19 test results.
  2. One healthy visitor (15 years old or +) is allowed to see the patient once a day, for 15 minutes. A visitor who needs a chaperone can bring one chaperone per visit.
  3. All visitors are required to pre-signup for visitation. The patient him/herself OR the visitor needs to ask/contact the ward nurses at least one day before the visitation. For any non-pre-signup visits to a patient in critical condition, the patient’s attending doctor is to determine whether he/she can have a visitor.
  4. No eating or drinking is allowed for patients and visitors during visitation.
  5. Upon arrival in the hospital, all visitors must take their body temperature at the main entrance. Visitors with a fever of 37.5℃ or over are NOT permitted to see the patient. In the hospital building, all visitors must wear a facemask at all times and clean their hands and fingers with hand sanitiser.
  6. All visitors are required to sign in at the visitor reception desk on 1F and fill out a visiting form provided at the desk. The form contains COVID-19 symptom screening questionnaire. Visitors with any symptoms on the questionnaire may not be allowed to see the patient.
