The Hikikomori Project
A pioneer ‘Awareness Token’ on the Binance Smart Chain
❝ No human beings, regardless of who they might be, want to look directly at their own shortcomings❞— Tatsuhiko Takimoto
There are millions of forgotten souls living in Japan who suffer from acute social withdrawal. They are known as hikikomori and their fellow citizens have not treated them kindly; in fact, hikikomori are often shunned and ridiculed for not conforming to the status quo.
This problem does not only affect Japanese people — it spans the entire world, including every nation, province, city and state. People have either dropped out of the hustle and bustle of every day life or never even experienced it to begin with.
Young or old, these individuals will be forgotten no longer.
Introducing the first ‘Awareness Token’ — Hikikomori ($HIKI)
Created by a man who calls himself Tatsuhiro Satō, HIKI Token’s main objective is to educate and spread awareness about this tragic social phenomenon.
Modeled after Binance’s official BEP-20 template, the token is as straightforward as it gets. While it does not offer fancy functions like some other cryptocurrencies, it does have something that many do not: a Vision.
By simply naming the token after the hikikomori phenomena, it piques the curiosity of those who hear about it, leading them to do their own research and learn more.

❝ I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person❞— Walt Whitman
At one point or another, the global pandemic forced many into lockdown, which meant they had to stay inside their homes, or another secluded place, for extended periods of time. To some, this was an uncomfortable situation, as they were so used to going about their normal routines.
Oddly enough, this created a connection between the “normal” person and hikikomori; self isolation, albeit unintended, put even the most extroverted people nearly on level with those who have been living alone and forgotten for months, if not years or decades.
Although they may not realize it, those who are not usually recluses or shut-ins can now somewhat relate to hikikomori lifestyle.
HIKI Token — Gaining momentum from the very beginning through communication and transparency
From the start, Satō has been open and honest with the community. He has gone to great lengths to gather and distribute all of the vital information any investor should have before committing to a project.
The white paper, which was first located on GitHub, is a living document that has been updated nearly every day since launch (August 9th, 2021).
This document contains Hikikomori Token’s roadmap, which has three phases, and two tentative ones.
