Just something to make clear: Kyoruygaku Saizensen (published by Gakken) was a
high end popular periodical, not a technical journal.
It is in a similar class to serious high quality pet enthusiast, anime/model
fan, home gardener, etc., periodicals that are
published by Japan (including other Gakken Mooks [Mook = somewhere between a
magazine and a book]).
So many libraries will not have carried it, and getting articles through ILL
will likely be exceedingly difficult. Can't hurt to
On the back page, however, they do have a message "To our foreign friends" that
this title can be purchased through OCS (Oversea
Courier Service). I don't know if this organization is still intact, and they
don't give a website, but here are some contact fax
