The article aims to describe the problem of the Japanese family system within the compass of almost 200 years. It compares the family sub-structure to 'components of a computer', or 'a body organ'. It also shows the development of the Japanese family system from the 19th century, when the Meiji restoration reforms started, and explains the hidden meaning of the Japanese word 'ie' - home. The authoress then describes some problems in modern Japanese families: otaku - the phenomenon of being addicted to computer games and comics, and parasaito - young people still living with their parents and spending money on their own pleasures.
