ABSTRACT
The article discusses the depiction of national identity in the anime motion picture "Porco Rosso," or "Kurenai no Buta," directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The author comments on images and simulations of Europe in Japanese popular culture and discusses wakon yoìsai, a concept in which Japanese national identity is kept distinct from Western civilization while assimilating some aspects of foreign culture through consumerism. He suggests "Porco Rosso" adopts methods of tourism through its presentation of spectacle and comments on how characters in the film represent Europe and the U.S.
