“Kanpo,” Chinese medicine in Japan has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. But they are actually different.

“Kanpo” is often prescribed by Japanese physicians trained in Western medicine. But Traditional Chinese Medicine is not prescribed by Western doctors.

The easiest way to find the best traditional Chinese medicine is to go to a “kanpo” pharmacy which is a member of the Japan Association for the Study of Chinese Traditional Medicine.

And before choosing a “kanpo” pharmacy we can check which one is best for your condition through the following websites.


Before manifesting symptoms, we have conditions. For example, before we are diagnosed with clinical depression, we experience a condition of depression. I think that Traditional Chinese Medicine uses such conditions as a consciousness transformation more than recovery. We can reach more possibilities to live in a wonderful world. And I think that Traditional Chinese Medicine is one source of support.
