If you are not sure if you should take your sick child to the hospital / clinic or do not and need to know how you should take care of him/her during holidays and night time, dial #8000.
It is the same abbreviated dial number for all over Japan.
You will be connected to your local call center. You can ask pediatricians and/or nurses for advice on the proper treatment and for the name of which hospital/clinic will accommodate your child.

In Sapporo this call center is open from 7p.m. to 11p.m. (as of Sep. 1, 2014)

Note from SEMI:
Only Japanese is available. If you aren’t fluent in Japanese, find a person who will translate in Japanese for you.
