Experience in going out with hikikomori is always amazing. Most often, I myself would forget that my friend is a hikikomori in real life.
Sometimes I will feel myself more like a hikikomori than anyone else......
The most meaningful encouragement that I have from hikikomori research are:
1. when the person who has a hikikomori experience look into my eyes and say, "Thank you! I think you are suitable for this job! I think this is very important. Please do not give up, and please continue your research;"
2. when one begin to pour out what he/she has in his/her mind to me;
3. when one has enough trust in me and willing to go through the past with me;
4. a good time of sharing of an outdoor adventure or a meal together.
