Japan Praises Nobel Laureate Kazuo Ishiguro, Highlights His Japanese Roots

TOKYO – The Japanese government congratulated Japanese-born British author Kazuo Ishiguro on Friday for winning the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Ishiguro’s win, which was announced on Thursday, was widely covered in Japanese media, and the prime minister also offered his congratulations.

“Japan is also home to a great number of his fans. Alongside them, I wish to congratulate Mr. Ishiguro on this magnificent achievement,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said in a statement.

The English writer, who was born in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1954, before moving to the United Kingdom at the age of five, has written eight books.

The Academy chose Ishiguro for the prestigious award for his “novels of great emotional force” and having “uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world.”

His most prominent works include “An Artist of the Floating World” (1986), “The Remains of the Day” (1989), which won the Booker Prize and was made into a movie, and “Never Let Me Go” (2005).
