Tanner and Kilmer had been Marine MPs and friends in Tokyo during the post-war occupation. Kilmer became aware of a woman, Eiko (
), who was involved in the black market so that she could procure penicillin for her sick daughter. Kilmer intervened on behalf of Eiko during a skirmish, saving her life. After they'd been living together, with Kilmer repeatedly asking Eiko to marry him, her brother (secretly her husband) Ken (Ken Takakura) returned from an island where he'd been stranded as an Imperial Japanese soldier. Both outraged that she was living with his former enemy and deeply indebted to Kilmer for saving the lives of his (apparently) only remaining family, Ken disappeared into the yakuza criminal underground and refused to see or speak to his sister. Eiko, cautious to do nothing to offend Ken further, broke off contact with Kilmer. Before returning to the US, Kilmer bought Eiko a bar (with money borrowed from George Tanner) which she operates to this day, named "Kilmer House" in his honor. Kilmer has never stopped loving her.
In 1980 he published "Gokai" 誤解 (Misunderstanding). In it he examined both sides of the trade frictions coin: were Japanese successes on US and European markets due to the fact that Westerners were lazy and ignorant about Japanese markets (in sharp contrast to the Japanese who were industrious and well-informed about the West), as many Japanese argued? Or was Japan deliberately keeping its markets closed and therefore operating with an unfair advantage (as many Westerners claimed)? For a brief period in the Summer of 1980 the book became the number one non-fiction best seller in Japan. It was also made into a four-hour TV documentary by TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System). The series was presented by Wilkinson and featured numerous interviews, including with the French anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss; Eugen Loderer, Chairman of IG Metall (the Union of German Metal Workers); the movie stars Alain Delon and
岸惠子; and many others. It was broadcast in Tokyo on March 9–12, 1980 and in the rest of Japan that April. "Gokai" was also published in new expanded editions in English, Italian, German, Chinese, and French. By 1992 it had sold a total of 250,000 copies. The book was well received not only in Japan but also in Europe and America: "This wry history of how each side has caricatured the other serves as an introduction to the topic which dominates relations today: trade. Neither side gets off lightly" wrote the "Economist" reviewer. The editor of the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung", Jürgen Eicke suggested the book was "Essential for everyone in economic circles who has any contact with Japan." "Both well-informed and witty..." wrote Claude Levi-Strauss, "I learned a great deal from it and it gave me food for thought too." James Fallows, writing in the "New York Review of Books", skipped the economic arguments and while praising Wilkinson's discussion of Japanese and Western images of each other, objected that his approach "pushes him toward the bizarre position of implying that the more often foreigners have observed a certain trait about Japan, the more likely it is to be false, not true."
