Online Diagnostic Questionnaire for Kampo medicine

At Kakikofu, we offer online Kampo consultations. If you can visit our store in Tokyo, please send this diagnostic questionnaire first. It will be used as a reference during your consultation on the day.

For those inquiring from overseas:

Many countries make it difficult to ship Kampo medicines from Japan. Customs often stop and dispose of them or return them to Japan. Therefore, we generally do not ship Kampo medicines overseas. Exceptions may be made for countries where shipping is possible or for supplements. In such cases, we use EMS for shipping.

Please consult with us for details.

Kampo consultations cost 5,000 yen.

(If you purchase Kampo medicines from our store, the counseling fee will be waived.)
