So let me start with a review here since no one has done yet at the time.

Jin is a manga made for people that enjoy some kind of historical conflicts.
What I mean by this is a surgeon travelling back in time accidentally (Edo period) and without a way to turn back.
He will have an impact in people's life in the past, using his skills as a surgeon to help save many lives and challenging every day difficulties of the past, for example: A deadly plague.
With the techology known from the future he is able to cure a disease that in the past was incurable.

both involve the main character going back in time to the warring states period, and both have advanced future knowledge about a skill, in Nobunaga no Chef its cooking and in jin its medicine.

Both great medical dramas, Black Jack is the original medical manga while Jin contains an interesting time travel element. Both good reads :) 
reportRecommended by Hana-Lu
They are both about doctors practicing modern medicine during the middle ages/Edo time period. One doesn't explain the procedure being performed wrong 9 out of 10 times and wasn't cancelled after about 20 chapters though... 
reportRecommended by AfterGlow
Both are fascinating in-depth views in to the medieval Japanese society during the Edo period. Both stories are also centered around a sensei character who uses his vast knowledge to understand the people around him to solve their problems. 
reportRecommended by AfterGlow
Both feature somewhat realistic takes on disease treatment and management.
