I think there are two other threads that deal with "Memoirs of a Geisha" mentioning other books related to that genre. As for non-fiction, I would recommend to read Alex Kerr ("Lost Japan", "Dogs and Demons"), Ian Buruma, Mark Schilling, John Dower ("Embracing Defeat", "War Without Mercy"), to name just a few. It really depends on which aspect of Japan you are interested in.
