    Lately I've been ill so I found a new favourite pastime of finding historical dog pictures - I've found loads of Akita, Sakhalin Husky and Shiba but not many of Kai, Kishu, Shikoku, Kai and Hokkaido... Does anyone know of a website or Pedigree Database that has pics of the other NK from the early 1900s-ish? I did ask on a historical dog picture facebook group but all I got was links to wikipedia articles that had no Historical Pictures on it so figured you guys might know of someone seems ya'll are the NK Experts xD

    That book I linked is a good source. If you've got the time to sift through my blog, I've got a lot of posts with old pictures etc. https://nihonken.blogspot.jp/

    @TheWalrus thank you so much! I'll see what I can do about ordering that book to the UK! I'll have a look through your blog as well! :)

    Ahh, I went to buy that book and it's 167 on the US Amazon.

    I purchased this book early this year, and it has some photos of older Kishu in it. Most aren't that old, though...

    @Crispy Yeah... It is pretty expensive. It isn't on the UK Amazon so getting it from Japan for me would be £180 for the actual book and about £80 import charges. D:

    I've been told about a book called NIPPO Winners Book... Apparently it has pictures of all the Nihon Ken in it that have won the NIPPO Shows... Does anyone know if this is a book you can buy or a book that is at the NIPPO HQ in Japan?

    Weird question: are these the sorts of books you pretty much have to find on Amazon to have any luck finding at all -- or would they have them at brick and mortar spots in Japan as well?

    @Kaja it's actually hard to find them online. Antique bookstores is where I usually find them.
