    Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art , By Shizuo Tsuji is a classic. Though I must admit, I rarely cook from it (too intimidated to cook Japanese food at home, yet), reading it is very enlightening. There are lots of drawings for instructions and techniques.

      A Simple Art is the classic Japanese cookbook in English. I would agree that it isn't the most accessible for home cooking. I have a couple of others with step by step photos that I use more.

      The topic of Chinese cookbooks has been discussed pretty extensively. Try this link:

      You could do a search and find other discussion threads. I don't remember a recent thread that discusses Japanese cookbooks.
