Since not many scripts are available on the internet, you do need to look 
for them in published form.  Eiji and Roland mentioned some sources, and 
I can add the following yearly publication:

Nenkan daihyo shinario shu, ed. Shinario Sakka Kyokai (Tokyo: Eijinsha)

This is also available in bookstores.

The best library for scripts in the Waseda Engeki Hakubutsukan.  They 
even have a separate catalog for scripts (they have many original 
shooting scripts), including one that indexes scripts published in 
magazines and books.  I'm not sure how many recent films they will have, 
but it is worth looking here if you can't find a script elsewhere.
