Since its start in 1971, Kousakusha has been crossing the boundaries between science, philosophy, religion and art to bring an interesting mix to the intellectually curious, with illustrations and designs to match.

Our success stories in the early days included the Japanese editions of Fritiof Capra's The Tao of Physics, Lyall Watson's Lifetide and James Lovelock's Gaia, followed in the 1990s by a selection from Comte de Buffon's Histoire Naturelle, the first complete translation of Goethe's Farbenlehre, and an award-winning 10-volume Leibniz collection.

Around the turn of the millennium, our focus shifted more toward original Japanese titles, but we do still publish the occasional translated book, as well as an increasing number of bilingual editions.

If you would like to purchase our titles from overseas, please contact www.amazon.co.jp or some other online bookstore that handles international orders from Japan.

For large orders, or for rights enquiries etc., please contact saturn@kousakusha.co.jp.
