probably have already, but I mention them just in case). Their
specialities fit in with exactly this type of book. They're not a
'used' bookshop, but they do carry a reasonable number of shinkohon
that would otherwise not be available through places like Kinokuniya.
Send them an email: they have a network of shops in Japan with whom
they deal with, and can make enquiries. So, if a shop does have it in
Japan - but are loath to make international sales (you have to get the
katakana conversion of a western name dead on from your North American
credit card) - they will act as an intermediary and get it.
It's a bit of a beaten docket, but try it.
