  • Japanese: 森元高見 (Morimoto Kôken)

Morimoto Kôken was a court physician to the lords of Satsuma han.

He was one of several tens of officials exiled in the 1808 Kinshirokukuzure Incident, in which Shimazu Shigehide railed against Shimazu Narinobu's policy changes, and sought to sweep away any supporters of Narinobu's agenda. Kôken was exiled to Tokunoshima; his younger brother Morimoto Sôsetsu, also a Satsuma official caught up in the affair, was exiled to a remote island as well.
