Purpose: The traditional mechanism of Japan "Okigusuri" (household medicine) originated in Toyama, the Hokuriku region of Japan, about 300 years ago. It is a system that incorporates the sales method of "senyuy-kouri" (Use first, pay later) that the medicine box is borrowed for free at each home, and the price of the use is collected later. In modern Japan this system is retreating. However, iSHP is focusing on the old method from the Edo period and considering the application to regional care from a global perspective jointly by the United States.
Methods: We investigated and examined the references. To clarify the historical transition from the occurrence of the putting medicine to the present, the report of the Taisho, the Meiji era, and the Edo period was summarized in a common format style in the place and the episode etc. while the document like the case report took so much. Just to clarify what's behind the sale of drugs, check out the next ten items. "Self-medication, health knowledge, trust relationships, counseling, information, marketing, sense of mission, understanding of the region, thinking about tradition, and solving problems"
Results: The beginning of the medicine was the Edo period and the method which had been passed down to the present. The instruction of the Lord of Toyama "the use is made ahead, and it penetrates the ambition of the salvation widely even in the remote village where it is not bathed in the Niue of medical treatment. It is the one that became the shape. The number of cases reported in the report was 20 cases. Japan has been delivering medicine throughout the country, but it has been found that it is not just a salesman but a complete trust from its customers. It was found that there is a big advantage in the understanding of the advice about health and the method of taking it when there is trust.Moreover, the advice of the hospital consultation was done from the health consultation, and the lecture of health was done even if the resident was collected.
Conclusion: The mechanism of the "okigusri" is changing in the Japan in the modern style. However, it seems that it is possible to apply the method which encompasses the relationship and the trust relation with the customer until around the Showa era from the occurrence globally. Therefore, thought to be a reference of the Rural Pharmacy Practice in the United States. In addition, it seems that there is a possibility of the application of the "pharmacy vision for the patient" that the Government (Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare) showed on October 23, 2015 in Japan.
