At the moment I'm researching the naval theater of the Imjin War (1592-1598).

I have access to most of the Korean sources regarding the naval battles (Imjin Changch'o, Nanjung Ilgi, Annals of Sonjo, Book of Corrections) but I want to get the Japanese perspective as well.

What are the main Japanese sources that deal with the naval battles? Are they available in English or will I have to attempt a translation?

I think for that you need to dig into primary Japanese source such as 朝鮮役録 (조선역록)
Any idea where I might find information on it? Google search doesn't seem to turn anything up.

AFAIK, Wakizaka Yasuharu left a record called Wakizaka-ki, Kōrai Funa Senki describes Angol'po and so does Shima gunki, Chillchoyang is described in Todo ke oboegaki, Todo Takatora also apparently left a record of his defeat at Myeongnyang. Now, I do not whether these sources are available in English, I compiled them from different books.
