The Dogs of Japan

This one's a photobook by renowned photographer Mitsuaki Iwago titled 'The Dogs of Japan'. It has pictures and some commentary on all the Japanese breeds, with a few sections on the lesser known breeds like the Kawakami and Minowa Shiba as well. Great photography, lots of dogs in this book. It still seems to be relatively easy to come by.

If anyone's interested in owning a copy, feel free to contact me at and I'll figure out how much the shipping etc will cost. This book will probably come to around 5000 yen with shipping to the US.


  1. I have this book. :-) Purchased it when it first came out.

  2. Love the pictures I've read Japanese Dogs: Akita, Shiba, and Other Breeds, but this book looks better.
