Knittingknots Magnet.

And of course I went in, and came home carrying several pounds more than I left with:

Martial Arts Teaching Tales (which has anecdotes about famous and not so famous Japanese martial arts teachers)
Taiho-jutsu: Law and Order in the Age of the Samurai  (It's actually Edo period, but still....)
Japanese Tales  (the blurb says 220 dazzling tales from medieval Japan)
