Looking for literary Miyazaki (or a Japanese "the Famished Road")

Please recommend (English language) books set in Japan, of the magical reality genre. I'm looking for well-written prose (or great translations thereof), quirky characters (with exaggerated traits), a touch of the supranatural (other worldliness), and ideally, a bit of humor in the mix. I love most of Rushdie's work and García Márquez', and thoroughly enjoyed Okri's famished road. What might I like?

Recommendations for a modern "The Inland Sea"?

Loved "The Inland Sea" by Richie. Recommendations for something comparable set in modern Japan? The more recent the better. Bonus points for Kindle/iBooks availability.
