Japanese cook books

Peter Rossi | Nov 13, 2004 06:53 PM

Can anyone recommend a definitive Japanese recipe book? I have bought the recent Harumi's Japanese Cooking and am disappointed with it - I wanted something more in-depth. It has recipes which seem very Westernised (basil/rosemary...).
I think I am looking for the Japanese equivalent of Sichuan Cookery by Fuchsia Dunlop.

Has anyone an opinion on any of the following?
Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art (Shizuo Tsuji, M.F.K. Fisher )
Shunju: New Japanese Cuisine (Charlie Trotter (Foreword), Takashi Sugimoto, Marcia Iwatate )
the Nobu cookbooks?
