18996Re: Qurey on Book -
- May 1, 2005The first thing you will want to do is go to e-hon (www.e-hon.ne.jp)
and ensure that this book is still in print. Once you get all of the
information (publisher, etc) from my experience you have three options
for getting a speciality book like this:
(1) go to Japan
(2) contact a major Japanese bookshop in North America like
Kinokuniya. I am fortunate to have one in my city and I do all of my
special orders through them. I know that they will post a book to
anywhere in the US . . . so, even if you live physically far from a
shop, you can make arrangements over the phone and they will send it
to you. The costs will be, of course, a bit high, as places like
Kinokuniya do *not* do flat exchange on the yen. Instead, they have a
'factored' exchange, where their costs (shipping, customs, service,
etc) get factored.
(3) If your Japanese is up to it, you can order through Amazon.co.jp.
