Outline

SAGA HIMAT (SAGA Heavy Ion Medical Accelerator in Tosu) is the first private-sector facility for cancer treatment using radiation in place of surgery in Japan. Designed to be “kind to the patient, both mind and body,” the center has three chambers for treatment from different angles. The chambers have walls up to 4 meters thick to provide adequate safety from radiation. The waiting space looks out on a light-filled pocket garden. The courtyard and interior spaces incorporate an abundance of greenery for a hospitable feel that helps patients to relax as they prepare for treatment.
