Stories with Japanese elements

seaotter

With over 40k stories, finding a particular genre can be very tricky.

Hence why this recommendation thread. I'm looking for recommendation for stories with Japanese elements in the story.

It could be a character, setting, location or culture.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

My story Finding Home is an action story involving some Japanese people, culture, and a fair section set in Japan.

One story I really enjoyed was Finding Home by Ernest Bywater as well as the others with the same MC. The story link is: https://storiesonline.net/s/66183/finding-home
The author's page link is: https://storiesonline.net/library/author.php?name=Ernest_Bywater&sf=alpha&so=asc

I am sure there are others available by other writers, but I can't remember which ones.

Artie had Japanese elements in quite a few of his stories, but sadly he's long gone, with all his stuff. If you google for
naked in school about ron
you should find a copy of 'About Ron', Artie's NiS story of a US boy raised in Japan and now subject to the US NiS program; that should lead you to others.

I am actually open to see what is available.

Heavy rape themes is my squick, as well as bust-the-balls-revenge kind of story.

But yeah, I'm in a discovering mode - you can only go so far with typing "japan" in the search box.

There is an author on ASSTR named Emi Tsuruta who is a Japanese girl, according to her story site. She has lived in the US and has stories about her adventures.

The inherent problem with searching for such stories, is that most of the racial/cultural story codes reflect cultural sexual stereotypes, rather than cultural elements. Thus "interracial" typically translates to BBM/White female, whereas "Oriental" typically translates into small Japanese woman beating submissive Western men. That makes searching for these types of stories extremely problematic. It's also why I NEVER use any of those codes myself, despite including multiple nationalities in many of my stories. :(

Chad Johnson: Year One has some Japanese elements and maybe a a couple of chapters actually in Japan. Alas, it's Incomplete and Inactive.

Cold Creek's Defenceman / DMan series has a couple of Japanese people and a company involved. It is set in the USA with London as a quick change of scenery. A good series in its own right

My story, A Well Lived Life, has a number of Japanese people, but they don't appear until well into AWLL2, which means you'd have to read 14 books and about 4.25 million words before you got there...

I actually read it all in a single sitting.

Nice story indeed.

@Dominions Son

Yeah, it is in my library already.

@Crumbly Writer

I feel you. The tags can be stereotypical and sometimes condescending.

Tagging stories like this can be very tricky - a Japanese American in a story can be either very american, staying to the roots japanese, or an amalgam of both cultures.

I'm writing Book 7 of AWLL2. As I said, the Japanese elements don't come in until well into AWLL2...

Japanese elements like Heroishmaium and Nagasakium? Probably have very high atomic weight and a very short half life.

My 'Mission' stories have some elements of Japanese culture and history concepts; primarily Yakuza and Ninja. The story is fiction so the storyline does not resemble modern day Japan.

I have several other stories which involve Chinese aspects.

I worked for Japanese, Chinese and Korean Bosses over 15 years as well as being located in China, Japan and Korea however the experiences were not typical of most Asian environments but highly specialized, thus did not reflect their culture.
