Social Insurance Operation Center (Japan)

This is a heads up to anybody trying to get in touch with the ?????????? (Social Insurance Operation Center) from overseas. The old telephone number listed on all of their official forms 03-3334-3131 or 0333343131 (dialed from overseas as 81-3-3334-3131 or 81333343131) is no longer in service and you may or may not hear a recorded NTT message that says their new number is 057-007-1165 or 0570071165. However, upon dialing this new number you will receive another recorded message stating that “this number is not reachable from overseas.” If you are like me, you will get a shrinking feeling in your stomach…
Then you will use your 1337 search skillz and perhaps find the needle in a haystack on a procurement document for toner cartridges: 03-5344-1100 (from overseas dial 81-3-5344-1100)
They will ask for an extension; tell them you’re a foreigner and love sushi and geisha, and everything will work out.
You’re welcome.

  1. Hi mate!
    I just got my Japanese name. I think you’re the best person to share it with.
    This is so cool. I can’t stop laughing. I’ll have my business card printed with it.
    Every girls are curious to know why such a name hehehe.
    Well, there must be a reason!

  2. HAHAHA – it’s usually backwards, man! You sit at a table with a group of Japanese and listen to the western names they have been given/given themselves. I kid you not, I knew more Japanese “Jacks” than any other nationality…
    Just tell the girls it’s easier to show them than tell them.
