Hotta Masayoshi, the lord of the Sakura Domain in the last years of the Shogunate, was a proponent of Rangaku or Dutch studies and promoted educational reform in the Domain. With these foundations, Sato Taizen, a doctor of European medicine, opened Juntendo, a school and clinic of European medicine, in Sakura in 1843.
This school formed the beginnings of Juntendo University. Part of the original building has been preserved as the Sakura Juntendo Memorial Building.
Exhibits in the building include a model of the original Juntendo, and medical instruments and books from that time. The Juntendo medical school produced many of the most important leaders in Japan’s medical field.
