In he published "Nande mo mite yaro" "I'll be everywhere" , a book describing his travels around the world on a shoestring budget, which became the bestseller of the year among Japan's post-war generation. Widely known as the leader of Beheiren League of Citizens' Movements for Peace in Vietnam and of other major citizens' movements on anti-war and anti-nuclear issues. His numerous essays and full-length novels reflect his activities both in Japan and abroad.

When Japan's perhaps most influential modern critic Kobayashi Hideo praised Ibuse's talent, saying that his works are "complex and conscioisly constructed in every detail," his stories started to gain recognition. The short story 'Koi' Carp marked Ibuse's turning to the more traditional techniques of his homeland.

He used the subjective Japanese "I-novel" mode, in which narrator and author are one.

The rustic countryside of southern Japan inspired his story 'Tangeshitei' It depictied two colorful characters, a master and servant, in a remote mountain valley. Ibuse's wry humor and psychologically sharp but sympathetic characterization of villagers, peasants, doctors, fishermen, and other "unchanging people" became the distinguished traits of his style. Among Ibuse's prewar works were the historic novella Sazanami gunki about the final defeat of the Heike clan in the 12th century.

In spite of living in Tokyo more than three-quarters of his life, many of Ibuse's stories had rural settings. Along with the Japanese army, he travelled as a war correspondent through Thailand and Malaya to Singapore. Hana no machi , City of Flowers was about Japanese propagandists in occupied Singapore, where Ibuse spent one year in the offices of the city's English-language daily the Strait Times , renamed the Shonan Times under the Japanese administration.

He also lectured on history at a Japanese language and culture school. While City of Flowers portrayed the relationships between occupiers and Singaporeans in a jovial manner, Ibuse later said that he stopped writing in his diary because "a diary kept with military censorship in mind seemed idiotic. I clearly realized more and more that though Singapore had falled, the war would not be over. Ibuse witnessed the end of the war and annihilation of Hiroshima in Kamo. Ibuse did not write much during this period, but his unwilling induction into military service probably inspired his biting satire of army drills in the story 'Yohai taicho' , Lieutenant Lookeast.

Ibuse's distate of the military also showed in his other works, such as Black Rain. After the war Ibuse started literary collaboration with Osamu Dazai , whose suicide in deepened Ibuse's views how fragile the life is. Although they eventually drifted apart, Ibuse was his patron in Tokyo literary circles, tried to persuade him to stay away from the drugs, and interacted with his family. In , they were evacuated to the same village.
