"Missing Marilyn" (Maririn-ni aitai) is a story of deception and delights, in which the protagonist dodges accusations of infidelity with a foreign floozy while concurrently having to suggest "the unthinkable" to his spouse. But another unthinkable outcome reveals itself in an O. Henry twist ending. "The South Seas" (Nanyo hoteru) opens as a travel tale, but quickly evolves into a horror story laden with satire and cultural criticism. Both stories are included in the collection Tokyo Nights (Tokyo naitokurabu. Tokyo: Kadokawa, 1992) by Kageyama Tamio (b. 1947 d. 1998). Kageyama's language is fresh, playful, and colloquial, which charges the translator...

In this part of the paper I explore my concept of the Grass-roots Culture further, particularly cultural expressions which are deeply rooted in the situation of a time and place. To clarify my idea, I contrast it with prevailing phenomena which are contrary or destructive to the Grass-roots Culture, such as spectacles and museumization. Whereas these trends cause fragmentalization of culture, the Grass-roots culture reconstructs the public sphere in terms of culture, history and tradition, empowering the community. The contribution of grass-roots culture to identity politics also becomes important subject of the argument.
The aim of this paper is to clarify my concept of the Grass-roots Culture, cultural expressions which are deeply rooted in the situation of a time and place. Artists of the Grass-roots Culture notice the sights, sounds and experiences of everyday life and use them as source materials. They find value in what we overlook, in what is too ordinary and too close at hand for us to pay attention to. The power of arts to cultivate new meanings and change the perception of surroundings is mobilized through the Grass-roots Culture for the enrichment of everyday life. Under this concept,...
