Japanese youths are shunning society to stay locked away in their bedroom. No longer able to face society, they have locked themselves in their bedrooms and refuse to exist in the outside world. There is thought to be nearly 1 million of them in the country and they are called hikikomori. The trend of young Japanese, predominantly males, locking themselves away is causing very worrying social and health problems for the country and is mystifying mental health experts. Yuto Onishi, now 18, spent nearly three years as a shut-in as he excommunicated himself from friends and family. Living in his bedroom, he would sleep during the day, surf online and read comics at night — occasionally slinking out to get some food. Mr Onishi became a hikikomori after he failed as a team leader at school and felt like an embarrassment, a feeling exacerbated by pressure placed on him by his family. His reasoning for permanently retreating to his bedroom is common among hikikomori. The intense pressure to perform at school or achieve in society leads some to deal with rejection or humiliation by shutting themselves away. Some stay in their rooms for years on end.

Skip to main content Japanese Bedroom Decor. In Stock. Purchased two of these. Went together fairly easily, the second lamp was a little roughed up on a corner and had one wobbly pole, but once assembled and tightened up, there's no instability and you can't see the corner. They look great, but the shades do block quite a bit of light.
