Where can you find Japanese books?
Normally I would email you back directly, but your comments do not always include your email addresses, even if you filled in the information.
Japanese craft books must be purchased through online bookstores like Amazon Japan, your local Japanese bookstore (if you are lucky enough to have one), or a site like ebay.
I use ebay, AND I have a local bookstore.
Excellent resources can be located through the site Crafting Japanese. (click on that...it's a link to the site for those of you who don't know)
There is also a crafting Japanese group on flickr that can help you translate a pattern. Remember, these books are written in Japanese, but often times diagrams are included that help you figure out how to make a particular item.
Good luck! These are the creme de la creme of the craft world!
