The research provides an alternative insight to how Tokyo urbanites identify with Japanese society as a whole given the changes brought by modernization, consumerism and other western concepts or ideas like the American way of life. The study by using the novels of Murakami Haruki debunks some images of Japan as a homogenous and egalitarian society and instead offers a theory on a kind of emerging Japanese individualism, where self-cultivation is the center of ones identity.
