Hey there

You could check on yesasia.com.

My Japanese has become very rusty, but it does have words "sweet" and "things" in the title, so you could search those words at yesasia....

Good luck!

Here's a link to YesAsia: http://us.yesasia.com/en/PrdDept.aspx/code-j/section-books/pid-1004860915/

Here's the title, if you need to Google or something: スウィーツな石けんの贈りもの

I think the title roughly translates to "Gifts of Sweet Soaps: Homemade Recipes that are Gentle to the Skin."

(I had to do a bit of peeking through the dictionary for that, so thanks for the mini Japanese lesson!)

When you get this book please let us know how you feel about it.  I have thought about getting some Japanese craft books.  But I never thought to look for any of their soap books.  The cover looks very good.
