In the woods of memory by Shun Medoruma( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in Japanese and English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The novel focuses on two incidents during the Battle of Okinawa, 1945: the sexual assault on Sayoko, 17, by four US soldiers and Seiji's stabbing revenge. Narrations through nine points of view, Japanese and American, from 1945 to present reveal the full complexity of events and how war trauma ripples through the generations. Medoruma's first full-length English translated work"--

Niji no tori by Shun Medoruma( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in Japanese and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medoruma’s novel Niji no tori (Rainbow Bird) was one of the best books published in Japan in 2006. It offers the reader a rare, painful experience. The story is set in Naha, the capital of Okinawa. Hika, a yakuza, makes a living from blackmailing men with compromising pictures he takes of them with prostitutes. His subordinate Katsuya is entrusted with managing the young women. One day, Hika brings home Mayu, a girl weak from drug use. Katsuya panics when Hika reprimands him for his uselessness in training her to be a good prostitute. Things start moving quickly when Mayu exacts revenge, through a grisly lynching, on a middle school teacher who has picked her up for sex. The novel obsessively depicts the violent bullying Mayu had been subjected to as a girl, Katsuya’s experiences as a delinquent, and the brutality of the yakuza. The most extreme violence portrayed in the book is the rape of an Okinawan girl by three U.S. servicemen. The rape and ensuing demonstrations, employed as a backdrop to the story, were modeled on an incident that actually took place in 1995.--Books from Japan

Fūon = The crying wind( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seikichi, 70, makes his living fishing from a small boat off the coast of Okinawa. He and his 12-year-old grandson Akira live in a small, tree-lined village in the northern part of the island which is surrounded by a white-sand beach and plots of pine and flowering bushes. On the cliff that skirts the shore sits an open-air burial ground containing the skull of a kamikaze pilot who was shot down during the last days of World-War II. When the wind blows through the bullet hole in the skull, it produces a whistling sound which causes the locals to cringe and shudder.--Japan Foundation (http://www.jfkl.org.my/shows/film_body.php?id=68)
