Chijin no ai is the full-length representative work of Junichiro Tanizaki.The male protagonist and female protagonist in the works maintained a husband-wife relationship with no precedent in the world.Kawai Saiji is an electrical engineer. He is conscientious and adores the West.In the bar, he met a girl named Na Omi, (whose original name was "e;Nnaidus"e;). He admired her looks like the mixed-blood people, and felt sad for her poor family circumstances, and then lived with her.Saiji hoped that he can train her to be a well-educated woman, and then got married with her.So he sent her to the English class and dance class, and contracted all her expenses.After that, he got married with Na Omi, but gradually realized that Na Omi had formed the arrogant and profligate habit and communicated with all kinds of men through the way of outside class.It was unbearable to him for her profligate habit, and kicked her out of the house.But he realized that he had been conquered by the body charm of Na Omi, and felt that one day seems like a year.With the excuse of taking something, Na Omi repeatedly took the opportunity to get in and out of the house with Saiji, and seduced Saiji to make him fall into love.Finally, two people returned to cohabitation:Saiji was resigned to a state of being abused, but Na Omi was still skittish and self-willed.
