Genzui UDAGAWA (January 28, 1756 - February 3, 1798) was a physician and Rangakusha (a person who studied Western sciences by means of the Dutch language). His first name was Shin and he was commonly known as Meigyo. He was also known under the name of Kaien or Tokai. He came from the family of doctors of the Tsuyama Domain working in Edo for generations. He had originally been a Chinese medicine doctor but turned to become a Rangakusha as he interacted with Genpaku SUGITA and Ryotaku MAENO. He adopted Genshin UDAGAWA.
