I have got to try and break out of my hikikomori shell and get involved with this! I want to join this JET programme myself! Where do I apply?I spedk english quite well. It's my second language and have spoken it for a long time. This is a means to go back home, my real home (Japan)!

This is the English section so I wrte English. I am a hikikomori or short 'hiki' myself. I have been for a number of years. I really do not like this 'tiugh-love' business at all! We have become like this due to mounting stress and pressures! The education system really needs to go to the hangar for a complete overhaul. Seriously.
It was fine after the war, but is no longer valid. The rote memorisation and monotonous manner of teaching is so outdated! It really is little wonder many of us turn hikikomori! I could have chosen crime or worse, suicide. But I didn't! I chose self-incarceration where I live. It is lonely, boring, sad, no love, no sex, and as we humans need contact with other people, I will be the first to admit that it is a damn shame to have to be forced into this position.
Humans can take only so much abuse before they snap. Most of us like myself inclusive are non-violent. It is a shame to hear and learn that some of us have resorted to violence. This is indeed not good. However, as I certainly no condone the violence, I can understand the frustration of being cooped up years in one's room only perhaps with a computer. As you can see I have a computer, or who knows what might have happened otherwise.
We need more critical thinking sort of education, with a greater flexibility and tolerance. That is the Buddhist way of doing things. Perhaps our education system lost that end. Mose universities need to be built as to lessen the student load and move away from all this entry exam stuff. This is the 21st Century, not 1945. Time for a serious change and PLEASE stop blaming us! We have been victimised by your system! We are your children! We are indeed the future of Japan! Thank you!
