This is my collection of books on Japanese castles. I refer to these books to fact check as much as possible when writing for this website or for planning castle visits. The series Meijo wo aruku and Meijo wo yuku are particularly useful. They have detailed descriptions and maps for each castle, have many pictures, and include information about the town and nearby sites of interest.
Unfortunately, the links for the Japanese books on these pages do not work. This is a problem with the LibraryThing widget system. It only creates links to Amazon.com, not the regional Amazon sites.Books by type:
