Storyline

A Jewish man in Tokyo named Joni Waka, who uses to call himself "Johnnie Walker", is the model of a character in Haruki Murakami's novel Kafka on the Shore. Joni Waka also claims that he is the only Jew left in Japan descending from the old Jewish families in the country. Confronted with a social pressure, he seems to ignore dominating norms and moral, and at the same time using his outside position, as a henna gaijin (the "strangest stranger") as a space of freedom to stage his life and create an everyday comedy.
