Extract from DramaWiki :

The story follows a brain surgeon named, Minakata Jin, who has spent the last two years in anguish, as his fiancee lies in a vegetative state after an operation he performed. One day, he faints at the hospital and awakens to find himself transported back in time to the Edo period. He is soon attacked by a samurai, but he escapes with the help of a man named Kyotaro. Kyotaro suffers a serious injury to the head while trying to protect him, but Jin manages to save his life despite a lack of proper medical equipment. Because of that, Kyotaro's sister Saki begins taking an interest in Jin and becomes his assistant. Meanwhile, Jin is determined to find a way back to the present.

Well, this is by far the most interesting medical J-dorama that I encountered. The procedures are much more real than the ones that I've seen in other doramas. It gets good rating from and it has a viewership rating of 18.9, which is quite a big deal. We can also see how the samurai is a different class to the peasants and normal people, which almost always hassle their way of life, and the transformation of Edo (the old name of Tokyo) into a much more modern place.

I'll be flying back home this Friday, so hopefully I can finish watching it by then. =)
