Katagiri Seiryudo

Traditional medicine in the middle of the city.

The Katagiri Seiryudo was created in this location during the Momoyama period (1568 ~ 1603), after receiving land from the feudal warlord Hideyoshi Toyotomi. Successive owners have inherited the name of that first building, which has a double meaning in Japanese; both a place in which one named for a dragon lives, and because it is built over that is known as a “dragon hole” in feng shui.

During the Edo period doctors from the surrounding areas worked here, and free medicine was dispensed to local people. With the changes in the laws after entering the Meiji period, however, they went on to receive permission to manufacture and sell traditional Japanese medicine.

The adjacent Japanese Medicine Museum exhibits the more than 400 years of history of this place, and the many medicines it has produced during that time. Currently, as a long-standing specialist in Japanese medicine, it places its foundation on Japanese medicine passed down to today, as well as bringing in medicines made by traditional Chinese medicine, seeking to explain in simple terms the Japanese medical approach to life, disease and old age, and impart the wonders of traditional medicine.

There are also materials here for those interested in Japanese, Chinese, and Tibetan traditional medicine.
