Pharmacy, drug store, is where you get your medicine.
In bigger places like general hospitals, the pharmacy department is built inside the hospital in Japan.
In smaller clinics, you can get your medication at the receptionist counter when you pay at the end of your visit.


In many clinics, however, your doctor prescribes necessary medicine, and you get the prescription at the end of your consultation.
You have to take it to a pharmacy, which is usually located within a block or two away from there.

If it is your first time to visit the pharmacy, you will ask you to fill out the medical questionnaire just like the one you filled out at the clinic.
The pharmacist has to make sure the prescribed medicine is safe and appropriate for you according to the information you provide on the medical questionnaire.

The pharmacist will get your medication ready and explain about each medicine to you thoroughly.

You need to make sure you get your prescribed medicine within 4 days, otherwise you will have to get it prescribed all over again by your doctor, and of course, you are going to have to see your doctor to get it!!!
