Japanese First Language Acquisition

I would like to ask for help in locating published research on
Japanese First Language Acquisition. In particular, I'm interested in
the acquisition of verb morphology, typical errors produced by
Japanese children learning the morphology, timeframe for acquisition,
and whether there is anything like the U-shaped learning curved
exhibited in the acquisition of English verb morphology. I would be
interested in research published in either English or Japanese.

Thank you in advance for your help. If there is interest, I will be
happy to publish a summary of the responses I receive.
