Are there restrictions on bringing my medications to Japan?

Please refer to the page below for information on medications:

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan

Basically restrictions only apply to narcotics (pain-killers such as Codeine etc.) and psychotropics (mood-altering drugs such as certain anti-depressants). If you are unsure, please see the following page for details.
