180 days from the day of the accident, for each traveler, we will pay to the statutory heirs of the traveler indemnity for
death in the amount of ¥25 million in the case of an Organized Tour for the purpose of an Overseas Trip and in the
amount of ¥15 million in the case of an Organized Tour for the purpose of a Domestic Trip (hereinafter referred to as
the “Indemnity Amount”). If, however, the indemnity for residual disability has already been paid to the said traveler,
we will pay the balance remaining after deducting such indemnity paid from the Indemnity Amount due.
(Payment of Indemnity for Residual Disability)
Article 7 If the traveler has suffered an injury as described in Article 1 and developed a residual disability as a direct
result of that injury within 180 days from the day of the accident (which means serious functional disability or the loss
of part of the body which remains in the body and is not recoverable in the future, and where the injury that caused this
disability or loss has been healed; hereinafter to be interpreted likewise), for each traveler, we will pay indemnity for
residual disability in the amount reached by multiplying the Indemnity Amount by the percentage listed in each item in
Schedule II .
2 Notwithstanding the provision of the preceding paragraph, if the traveler is in a condition still requiring treatment
even after a lapse of 180 days from the day of the accident, we will pay indemnity for residual disability after
identifying the extent of the residual disability based on the diagnosis of a physician as of the 181st day from the day
of the accident.
3 As for any residual disability not listed in the respective items in Schedule II, we will determine the payable amount
of indemnity for residual disability according to the extent of the physical disability and pursuant to the classification of
the respective items in Schedule II, regardless of the occupation, age, social status, etc. of the traveler. However, if the
functional disability of the disability is not as serious as those listed in 1 (3), 1 (4), 2 (3), 4 (4), and 5 (2) of Schedule II,
we will not pay indemnity for residual disability.
4 If two or more types of residual disability are caused by the same accident, we will pay the total amount of indemnity
by applying the preceding three paragraphs to each of those. However, for the residual disability of upper limbs (arms
and hands) or lower limbs (legs and feet) as described in 7, 8, and 9 of Schedule II, the maximum amount payable by us
for indemnity for residual disability will be limited to 60% of the Indemnity Amount for each limb.
5 To one traveler for each Organized Tour, the maximum amount payable by us for residual disability under each of
the preceding paragraphs shall be the amount of the Indemnity Amount.
(Payment of Solatium for Hospitalization)
Article 8 If the traveler has suffered an injury as described in Article 1, and, as a direct result, has become unable to
engage in normal work or to lead a normal life, and has been hospitalized (meaning that, treatment by a physician is
required, and the patient is hospitalized at a hospital or clinic, because treatment at home, etc. is difficult, to concentrate
on treatment under the physician’s constant care. Hereinafter to be interpreted likewise in this Article), we will pay a
solatium for hospitalization according to the number of days (hereinafter referred to as “Hospitalization Days”)
hospitalized under the following classification:
a. In the case of an Organized Tour for the purpose of an Overseas Trip:
(1) Where the traveler has suffered injury requiring 180 or more Hospitalization
Days: ¥400,000;

Days: ¥200,000;

180 Hospitalization Days: ¥100,000;
(3) Where the traveler has suffered injury requiring 7 or more but less than 90
Hospitalization Days: ¥50,000; or
(4) Where the traveler has suffered injury requiring less than 7 Hospitalization
Days: ¥20,000
2 Even when the traveler is not hospitalized, if any one of the items listed in Schedule III applies to the traveler, and
the traveler has received treatment by a physician, the period during which the traveler is under such conditions
shall be considered Hospitalization Days when applying the provisions of the preceding paragraph.
3 If we are to pay either a combination of a solatium for hospitalization and indemnity for death or a solatium for
hospitalization and indemnity of residual disability for one traveler, we will pay the total amount of either
combination.
(Payment of a Solatium for Hospital Visits)
Article 9 If the traveler has suffered an injury as described in Article 1, and, as a direct result, has experienced difficulty in
engaging in normal work or leading a normal life, and has needed to visit a hospital (which means that because treatment
by a physician is necessary, the patient visits a hospital or clinic to receive treatment by a physician (including house visits
by a physician). Hereinafter to be interpreted likewise in this Article), and the number of days spent for such hospital visits
(hereinafter referred to as “Visit Days”) is equal to or greater than 3 days, we will pay to the traveler a solatium for hospital
visits for the said number of days in accordance with the following classification:
a. In the case of an Organized Tour for the purpose of an Overseas Trip:

(1) Where the traveler has suffered injury requiring 90 or more Visit Days: ¥50,000;
(2) Where the traveler has suffered injury requiring 7 or more but less than 90 Visit Days: ¥25,000; or
(3) Where the traveler has suffered injury requiring 3 or more but less than 7 Visit Days: ¥10,000.
2 Even if the traveler does not visit a hospital, when we recognize that the traveler has experienced considerable
difficulty in engaging in normal work or leading a normal life because of a plaster cast, etc. being attached
continuously to the part of his/her body suffering from an injury, such as a bone fracture, under the instruction of a
physician, the period under such conditions shall be considered Visit Days when applying the provisions of the
preceding paragraph.
