NOTE : Unfortunately we are obliged to close this clinic due to severe vibration created by the kickboxing gym on the above floor.  We repeatedly asked the gym and the building to make a construction to reduce vibration.  They completely ignore us.  We filed a lawsuit and submitted the vibration data which is measured by an authorized architect.  We are thinking we will win the trial because of the favourable data for us.  However, it will take a very long time to obtain the final judgement.  In addition, the vibration has become severer recently although the frequency has decreased.  This means the risk of needle stick injury accident will be greatly increased.  We concluded that we do not have other choice than closing.  We apologize all the patients.  We will close on 30th of June, 2023.

We are a primary care clinic.  Dr. Yas Taniguchi, a general practitioner, examines your almost all symptoms.  If you have a disease which we cannot treat, we will advise you to visit a large hospital with a referral letter.  You can consult with an e-mail free of charge before visiting us.  Don't hesitate to contact us anytime.
