I would amend your comment only to note that everyone living in Japan after a short time is legally obligated to participate in the system, whether citizen or not. Cost is relative to income, with a co-pay of 30%, which one can hedge with private insurance. One can also insure privately against specific illness, such as cancer. A couple of years ago, an additional tax for long term care was added.

Nothing is free and neither should it be.

Somewhat off topic, but perhaps reinforcing your better faster cheaper point:
