From Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam:

The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam proudly presents the talk session “Hikikomori” by the Photographer, Ms. Maika Elan and Specialist, Ms. Oguri Ayako in Hanoi on Wednesday, 15 and Friday, 17 of March.

The Japan Foundation Asia Center awarded Maika Elan as an Asia Center Fellowship, which is supporting program for individual activities for research, creative engagements, and network building among Japan and South East Asia.

Maika had stayed in Japan for 6 months, from March to September, 2016 and researched about Hikikomori. She will share her project and experience in Japan to us with some photos her took. At the same time, we invite Ms. Oguri who works as a “Rental Sister” to support Hikikomori persons in Japan.

And we will welcome two young Japanese guests, former hikikomori, who are trying to re-socialize themselves.

These various viewpoints around Hikikomori provide us wide and rich understandings about this issue.

Language: Vietnamese and Japanese
