Can start with Gale Virtual Reference.

Sample search: Japan and atom bomb and literature.
First three entries cover some Japanese works that deal with World War II and the atomic bomb such as Barefoot Gen. The article, which I am attaching as an example, is part of a reference book entitled The Literature of War. You can also view and access the full book via Gale Virtual Reference (direct link: https://www.berea.edu:2443/login?url=https://go.gale.com/ps/i.do?p=GVRL&sw=w&u=berea&v=2.1&vo=2&it=etoc&id=GALE%7C4OBD&sid=GVRL )

For articles, you can use one of our databases. I suggest:

Academic Search Complete (combine with eBook Academic Collection (EBSCOhost), eBook Collection (EBSCOhost), Historical Abstracts, Humanities International Complete, MLA International Bibliography)

Sample search: Japan and literature and atomic bomb = about 160 hits
