First published in 1682, The Life of an Amorous Man depicts the pursuits and follies of the most glorious age of Japan, when wealthy commoners could rise above the warrior caste and indulge in the free and easy life of Japan's pleasure houses. The hero, Yonosuke, whose name means "Man of the World," is followed from his precocious childhood to the close of his amatory career. His erotic escapades are chronicled, always with frankness and often with pathos. The character sketches of the women (and sometimes men) with whom he dallied are vividly portrayed
This scheming world by Saikaku Ihara( Book )

27 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Scheming World (Seken Munasanyo) was published in 1692, one year before the author's death. It represents the culmination of Saikaku's perceptive genius, and in structure, is one of the most consolidated of all his works. Most of the stories are told as incidents or episodes relating to New Year's Eve, when in those days it was the custom to balance all debits and credits for the year. At this particular time of year, the drama of life reached its climax; there were tragedies, comedies, and farces. The players were of the nameless masses.

Tales of Japanese justice by Saikaku Ihara( Book )

14 editions published between 1979 and 1993 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the introduction: " ... the book ... is, in fact, a compendium of wry twists on the trial accounts popular at the time it was written. There is no principle character, except for a judge usually referred to as gozen, or "His Lordship," and the principlal concern is very broad: justice under the Kyōto Shoshidai in the seventeenth century. Some of the stories can be traced to the Itakura Seiyō (Essentials of the administration of Itakura), a collection of trial records and stories of the Kyōto Shoshidai ministers Itakura Katsushige (administration from 1601-1619) and his son, Shigemune (administration from 1619-1654)."
