Well someone should do a shipcraft book

And I elect you 😉
There is no Friedman-like reference for the DDs as of yet, though there is one for the cruisers, though OOP and pricey (Lacroix and Wells "Japanese Cruisers of the Pacific War").
Naval Institute Press has released English captioned versions of the Kure Maritime Museum large format photo books of the IJN. I know the DD books is out.
For a quick fix on visual references, many Wiki articles on a particular ship (or at least the class) have a link to a photo. As often or not, it is a good hi-rez version of many of the same photos found in the KMM books. One might have to search for the class, then click on each ship to find a particularly good photo. Most can be enlarged in size.
