Autism

I have ASD. It's mostly aspergers with adhd and ocd in joint second place, and then bits of all the rest. I am wondering if in Japan, am I normal ; an eccentric foreigner; appear to be hikikomori, or perhaps in Japan there's no qualms about differences. Personally I feel that I am already foreign, so I appear normal. Maybe.

    Personally answer is depends on what your purpose is. I was hikikomori while 3 years since age 15. There is many choices that you can choose while you spending your life. But all the decision you made are depending on your purpose.

    As a teacher for over five years, I've noticed that most parents of autistic kids refuse to accept that their children are different/have special needs or however it is best to phrase it. A major problem is that Japan is at least 10-15 years behind in autism knowledge, research, treatment, etc. This could be in your favour since they most likely won't understand your behaviour. However, since you're an adult and aware, I'm sure that you'll manage well regardless of how people decide to treat you. I hope that no one gives you a hard time and treats you with the respect that you deserve like every other human being. :D

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
