In japan's case I found this website that has a large body of information on a variety of topics (articles, books, ect.), however I'm still looking for more on the subject:
(Disclaimer: they very rarely talk about the natsocs and the holocaust, but when they do they usually take the mainstream western view on the subject.)
Italian revisionism is where I've found very little, most websites listed here have some revisionism but are mostly about politics, modern events or are just overall sparse in information:
(Note: Websites are mostly pro-fascist if you care about that)
Thus, to finish this post off, I'm asking if anybody knows where there is Japanese and especially Italian revisionism available. It would be greatly appreciated.
The Holocaust Revisionist literature is mainly made up of specialist studies and not linear histories that put all the facts into context as a comprehensive antidote to the current picture. Over all the revisionist literature leaves a lot to be desired.
Here are some articles that are sure to interest you and help satisfy the search for the research on this topic.

National Socialism and Fascism Recent Books in Brief
I would recommend any books written by the historian A. James Gregor, he has written extensively on Italiam Fascism and at one point was writing for "The European" which I believe was a Journal that had something to do with Oswald Mosley. Even though I despise Mosley, I still think his Gregor associating with Fascists is something noteworthy, whether he was a Fascist himself I'm not sure. But he certainly wasn't a vitriolic hater like the majority of authors are who write about Fascism. Perhaps he could be likened to a Paul Preston, who wrote about the Spanish civil war despite being a partisan for the Marxists. Although, Gregor is much less of a partisan than any historian who is sympathetic to Marxism because he retains objectivity.
He wrote a biography of Giovanni Gentile which you can see here: https://archive.org/details/giovannigentilep00greg/mode/2up
Here is a book he wrote regarding the problems of Marxism in philosophy and theory of history:
Some of his other noteworthy books:
Faces of Janus explodes the myth that "Fascism is just capitalism in decay". Nothing but baseless Marxist drivel. On that claim, see this wonderful video by Keith Woods:
Another book on the history of Fascist Italy which I've seen recommended before and I personally own, is:
Day of the Lion: The Rise and Fall of Fascist Italy 1922-1945
Another book which has been recommended is the biography of Mussolini by Anthony James Joes:
by Anthony James Joes. New York: Franklin Watts, 1982. 405pp. $18.95. A full-scale biography of the revolutionary intellectual turned Duce, by a leading interpreter of Fascism in the revisionist vein. Not sparing in criticisms, the work is nevertheless devoid of condemnatory zeal and not at all shy about describing matter-of-factly the many social, cultural, economic, and foreign policy accomplishments of the Fascist regime, the genuine idealism and intellectual grounding of Mussolini’s program, and the broad support it enjoyed from the Italian people. It is seen to be strange that the Mussolini of the 1920s and early ’30s, so widely admired and praised even in the world liberal press as the savior of his country, institutor of needed reforms and developer of a workable “alternate way” transcending both Bolshevism and Reaction, could so quickly and so blithely be painted over as an inhuman monster or buffoon. This biography is essentially a careful restoration-job, scraping away the propaganda coloration to reveal a much more objective, truthful picture of the man and his era.

Also, just go on Archive.Org and look for books regarding Fascist Italy and Mussolini from the 1920s/30s. You'll find many favourable books written about Fascism and its Italian variant while avoiding the poison of modern scholarship.

Universal Aspects Of Fascism
Many of these books appear to be genuinely objective if not positive books in regards to Fascism. The first book actually has a preface by Mussolini himself, and others here are written by Fascists like Mussolini or Gentile. Universal Aspects of Fascism is a book i've looked through before and appears to be quite positive.
