@mami66 Reading as a hobby is not very popular here. Most people read only a few books a year if any, so it's not really that surprising. Among people who read a lot, Kazuo Ishiguro would be very well known, but not that many people read a lot. Haruki Murakami is more popular here, at least if internet forums are anything to go by. There are often posts made talking about his books.
Sorry if I misinterpreted anything my Japanese still leaves a lot to be desired.
