Yoichi Nishimaru (西丸 與一, Nishimaru Yoichi, born March 1927 in Yokohama) is a Japanese physician specializing in medical jurisprudence.[1] His books were so popular that they became best-sellers in Japan.[1]


Nishimaru studied Medicine at Yokohama Medical College (present-day Yokohama City University School of Medicine), and was appointed Professor of medical jurisprudence there in 1973.[1] While working at Yokohama City University, he wrote some enlightening essays on forensic medicine, including Afternoon in the Forensic Medicine Classroom which was made into a TV program in Japan.[2] After retiring from Yokohama City University and becoming Professor Emeritus, he became a ship's doctor.
