When various opinions about history spread in the 1990s, Haruki Murakami also published Nejimakidori Chronicle on the theme of history in 1995. He wasn't going to face history as a writer until he wrote this novel. How does Murakami picture history as a contemporary writer of today in his novel? In this paper, I will consider Murakami's narrative of history in Nejimakidori Chronicle referring to other various opinions about history today. In order to clarify what Murakami's narrative of history is, I will study the meaning of ""Nejimakidori"" used as the keyword of this novel and the structure of narration of the text.
