First published in 1999, Maruyama explores some significant difficulties and differences in bringing the western hospice philosophy to the Japanese medical culture. Whilst not giving any definite answers, this study determines what some of the critical questions that need to be considered into Japanese medicine, as Mayuyama argues without defining these questions to begin with we cannot find appropriate solutions.
