Also great japanese author: Banana Yoshimoto. You know she has to eb great, because her name is Banana! (She said it was androgynous, I believe...)
She's like a female Murakami, her books are really cute (and weird as hell sometimes).
Norwegian Wood is one of my favorite novels. Sure it hits pretty close to home but that's only half of it. It's a twisted little love story that spans years and really gets into the mind of the protagonist. the setting is pitch perfect for how the characters feel and act as though that era was the only time feasible for characters like that to exist.
