What is Kampo (汉方)?

Kampo (汉方) is arguably one of Japan’s best-kept secrets – many have never heard of it, yet it has been an integral part of healthcare in Japan for centuries.

Kampo, also known as Traditional Japanese Herbal Medicine, is a standardised multi-herb therapeutic tradition developed uniquely in Japan over 1400 years; Its roots are in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s said that Buddhist monks brought with them medicinal knowledge of herbs when they came over to Japan from China in the 5th and 6th centuries, and that it was gradually adapted to suit the local population, becoming Japanese kampo. This particular medical system is organised based on the reactions of the human body to therapeutic interventions.

Today, kampo is strictly regulated by the national government—it’s not just a bag of random herbs. The type and ratio of ingredients in each formulation is stipulated, the number of formulations limited, and the final products tested and approved. Research is conducted on the use of kampo in the treatment of various health conditions, and you can often find the published studies in English, just by searching on the web.

There are a few different pharmaceutical companies that manufacture kampo in Japan, but regardless of which brand you buy, you can expect the formulation to be the same. While you might find similar formulations in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the amount of each ingredient is typically a lot smaller in kampo.
