Kampo virtual class

Welcome to the Virtual Class in the Center for Kampo Medicine, Keio University School of Medicine

At this site, you can learn about the uniqueness of Japan's traditional herbal medicine. This includes Kampo's history, philosophy, herbs and herbal formulas. Additionally, this site illustrates key aspects of Kampo's physical exam, mechanisms of action, and integration into Japan's university medical centers.

The content of this cybertext site is enhanced by the use of internal and external links, photographs and animation. As this site is under continual revision and updating, we anticipate the addition of audio and video clips in the near future.

We provide this as a free service so that students, faculty and researchers from all over the world can gain knowledge about Japan's traditional herbal medicine. Please enjoy!
