Ito Pharmacy is the second oldest licensed pharmacy in Kumamoto Prefecture. In the mid 19th century, we were selling decoctions to samurai warriors and merchants, and we are still mainly dealing Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) utilizing our knowledges and history. Our 5th owner was not only running the decoction sales business but the wholesale business as well, and even had apprentices called "decchi." We have TCM consulting sessions on every 1st and 3rd Sunday, from 11 am to 5 pm, where you can get a TCM prescription with detailed explanations.
