New Titles for Spring 2021

While working through a pandemic, we have managed to put together fourteen newly translated works for Spring 2021. The titles in this list will be donated to the libraries and institutions included in our donation program this upcoming spring. The books will be made available for purchase starting from April. eBook editions will follow shortly.

Winter Holiday Hours / 2020 Donation Delivery

For the 2020/21 holiday season JAPAN LIBRARY will be on break from December 28~January 4. Although some staff will be working from home, we will be back in the office on January 5th (Tuesday).

[UPDATED] Event Cancellation/Postponement

JAPAN LIBRARY titles are exhibited at multiple conferences every year. Two of which are the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) conference and the International Studies Association (ISA) conference, both held annually in a major city in America or Canada.
