Q: This may had had something to do with the fact that fictions had long had a large market in Japan. During the Tokugawa shogunate, popular fictions called "gesaku" had a market of big cities. And then, with the establishment of diplomatic relations with Western countries, the concept of "literature" came from Europe to the Japan of the Meiji era, and writers came to be recognized as artists. Because of this influence, fiction writers had a high social status in Japan and, by extension, film writers were treated the same as fiction writers or novelists.
