Looking for these Japanese books 2009/1/27 10:07

I am looking for the below books. I have checked Yahoo Japan but no luck. Can anyone help me?

Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto-ryu Budo Kyohan by Sugino, Yoshio & Ito,Kikue (1941)
Jojutsu Kyohon by Shimizu Takaji (dated 1940 or 1988) :

I looked up the first title (in Japanese) on Tokyo's used book database, but it does not come up as available anywhere among the over 50 used bookstores that are registered there. Also, any book related to Katori Shinto-ryu found on amazon.co.jp seems to be out of stock.
There seems to be a DVD:

The second one, while the title I found was slightly different (Joudou Kyohan) it is by Takaji Shimizu, and is listed on one online shop, but again no stock available.

Hi chicagoguy,


This is the website of 日本杖道会本部, not quite 大日本杖道会本部, but it must be the current form of the publisher you mentioned.

When I go to their publication page 書籍案内:

There is a book, again called 杖道教範, which they say they are contemplating a reprint of.

There is an envelope-shaped moving icon, that's the "e-mail for inquiry" button there, if you want to try.

For the rest of it, since both are very old books, searching through other used bookshops would be your only way.
