Wikipedia definition
1. Kusumoto Ine, also known as Oine was the first female doctor of Western medicine in Japan, and the daughter of German Dejima-based physician Philipp Franz von Siebold. Her mother was Kusumoto Otaki, who may have been a courtesan but who in any case bore a courtesan's stamp in her official papers allowing her access to Siebold in Dejima, the Dutch East India Company enclave in Nagasaki closed to almost all Japanese but courtesans.
