Tuesday Terminology: Isha (Doctor)

Tuesday Terminology is a weekly segment to enlighten the masses with words, phrases, and ideals usually tacked on to today’s anime/manga scene.

This week’s topic: Isha


Isha (医師)

Doctor (Medical)

So I’ve been watching this awesome Japanese Medical TV drama, “Doctor X,” and thought it would be a nice idea to make it today’s term.  As we all know, medical doctors are needed to prolong and ensure a healthy life.  When visiting a Japanese doctor, you address them as “-Sensei.”  After all, they are guiding you to a better lifestyle, so it is only right to refer them the same way you would for teachers and mentors.
