What would be a good starting point for locating small or medium size game publishers in Japan. We have a US/EU released game that we believe will fit the Japanese market well, and are looking for companies that we could contact for possible co-publishing.

EDIT: So far, I've found http://www.gamebusiness.jp/directory/category.php?id=10002 and from one answer, http://www.gamedevmap.com/index.php?query=Japan&Submit=Search

Starting a bounty, I need as many publishers as I can get.

I tried searching for 'ゲームソフト出版社' for you but couldn't find anything that looked like a conclusive list.

Dave Perry has a great site listing (or attempting to list) all games companies in the world. Here it is:

Hope that helps.

Off of the top of my head, the first place I could imagine a list of that type existing is at the IGDA Japan site.
