TAJCD Volume V Now Available!

After another round of editing and indexing, etc., TAJCD Volume V is now available for purchase. This essay details Japanese regular hip roof construction. It is based on the earlier TAJCD essays, especially volumes II and III, so purchasers should be aware that if they have not looked at the earlier essays, then there will be areas of Volume V that will be mystifying. Otherwise, I hope I have done a decent job at beginning the explanation of what is otherwise a complex topic.

The table of contents runs three pages:

To purchase, send $40, by Paypal or Squarecash, to my Email address and I will send you the Volume V .pdf file promptly. For those looking to purchase the TAJCD essay set, please know that it is available at a discounted price from that of buying the volumes on an individual basis. The set of 5 volumes is priced at $140.00 and comprises 1004 pages of material, most of which is not available elsewhere in any language other than Japanese.


  1. Do you have a Table of Contents for Volume V that you can post or send me a link to?

    1. Baruch,

      the post above has been amended to show the three pages from the table of contents.


  2. Thank you very much Chris. All the best.

  3. Hi Chris,
    I love that you have done this. I'm researching a PhD on the principles of traditional Japanese House design. I will like to buy these set do you ship to Australia?
    Cheers Philip.

    1. Philip,

      drop me an email and I'll give you more details. They are .pdf format, so no shipping costs to worry about.
