Books about Japanese Ceramics (in Japanese)

If anyone has a chance to visit Japan take time to check out the used bookstores for books on Japanese ceramics. There are some chain stores like "Book Off" and "Tsutaya" that sell used books. There is a great old book shop area in Umeda, Osaka that has used books, rare books, prints and such. There is also some little bookstores in Osaka, near the American Consulate. In Tokyo there in an area where they have many old bookstores, but the name escapes me right now. Regular bookstores usually have a section on ceramics with new books published within the last few years.
Many exhibitions and museum shops carry very nice catalogs and books on Japanese ceramics.
