Antique Japanese medicine bottle
icon Back to the collection


This antique Japanese medicine bottle lists a tincture of Indian hemp as one of its ingredients. The name Shinyaku represented a medicine of marvellous efficacy, because the word is a compound of Shin and Yaku, meaning “divine or almighty” and “medicine,” respectively.
