O'Reilly's "CJKV Information Processing"[1] have sections about typesetting,
written in English (also Japanese translation available[2]) by Dr.
Lunde at Adobe.

In Japanese, the books by "日本エディタースクール(Japan Editor School)[3]" might give you
some help. I am not an typesetting specialist, though...

1. 文字組版入門 4-88888-358-0
Introductory books about typesetting Japanese

2. 文字の組方ルールブック〈ヨコ組編〉 4-88888-312-2
Rule book for typesetting Japanese (horizontal)

3. 文字の組方ルールブック〈タテ組編〉 4-88888-314-9
Rule book for typesetting Japanese (vertical)

4. 日本語表記ルールブック 4-88888-359-9
Rule book for Japanese notation

These books are just 525 yens each, and have only around 80 pages.
