New thematic series
Edited by Takakazu Oka (Kyushu University, Japan), this thematic series is to introduce the ways in which Japanese physicians have sought to integrate Kampo and modern medicine in their psychosomatic medical practices, the usefulness of Kampo in psychosomatic medicine, and the problems that have recently emerged.
