Living Well with Nihombashi Mitsukoshi

2017.02.17

126_01.jpgIn the spirit of Japanese omotenashi hospitality at Nihombashi Mitsukoshi we have always put caring for the customer at the heart of our store. One of the most fundamental ways we aim to do so is actually one of the most easily overlooked in the form of our fully stocked pharmacy section, with over-the-counter drugs and supplements as well as the traditional Kampo medicine..

126_02.jpgTraditional Chinese medicine may have become increasingly well-known globally, but Japan has a history of its own, with traditional Japanese Kampo medicine dating from the seventh century still enjoying robust popularity, and its benefits recognized by various governmental and medical establishment where it continues to be closely researched. Accordingly Nihombashi Mitsukoshi sells both Kampo herbal medicine and Western medicine side by side to ensure that no matter the concern, the full scope of medicine is at their disposal.

It is not just the school of Kampo medicine that enjoys a long history, as many of the Japanese brands such as Fujii Risaburo Darasuke whose digestive medicine has over 1300 years of history to its name, an enviable history modern medicine can rarely attest to. Elsewhere popular supplements like the range of Jacko health drinks are an easy introduction for those wanting to feel the benefits of nature's own remedies, and others such as the vast selection of high quality incense sticks.
