Recommend a cookbook

So next month I'm leaving the U.S to study abroad in Japan for a few months.  I'm not sure if a lot of the items I use to cook are going to be as readily available (or as low cost) in Japan so I was hoping that someone could recommend a good vegetarian cookbook w/many Japanese recipes. 

i would pick up a macrobiotic cookbook. i can't remember the name of any, but many feature a lot of foods that i purchase at my asian food market.

even going to an AFM (if you have one in town) can help you see what you might be able to find. mine has a LOT of vegan stuff!

Thanks baypuppy! ;)b  I don't have one around but have been planning on going to one for a while so this is a really good excuse to make the trip.

I'm so envious.  Japan is on my "must see" places to visit.  I love all things Asian. 

"The enlightened kitchen:  fresh vegetable dishes from the temples of Japan" is a pretty good cookbook.  It's not big , but it's good interesting food and nice pictures.  http://www.amazon.com/Enlightened-Kitchen-Vegetable-Dishes-Temples/dp/4770024932

I also have "The Asian Vegan Kitchen" by Hema Parekh...which is a very good cookbook, again small, but good.  Japan is pretty international, especially when it comes to pan-Asian food, so using this cookbook, or another pan-Asian book might be relatively easy...http://www.amazon.com/Asian-Vegan-Kitchen-Authentic-Appetizing/dp/477003069X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248382910&sr=1-1
