Many couples in Toyoko have a woman who provides the money and a man who provides mental health care for the woman.

The number of “Tohyoko Kids” usually increases from spring to summer and decreases as the weather gets colder, but this year’s mild winter trend seems to indicate that their on-season will continue.

She has changed since she started going to Tohyoko. I can’t sleep worrying that she might get involved in some kind of crime. ……

Goro (pseudonym, 40) lives in the suburbs of Tokyo. He met Mai (pseudonym) through a live stream on “Tweekas” and developed a relationship with her after keeping in touch with her. Gorou, who is only three years older than Mai’s parents, says he has mixed feelings of love and parental love for the tohyoko kid.

About six months ago, a girl named Rinka (pseudonym, 14), whom he also met on “Tweekas,” invited him to come into Kabukicho. Mai is relatively quiet and not an aggressive girl, but from the beginning of our relationship, she didn’t want to stay at her parents’ house, OD’d, and was looking for somewhere comfortable to hang out. I was hoping I could be that place. ……”

According to Goro, some of the young people streaming on “Tweekas” told him that they had no choice but to stay here (on Tweekas) because there were no to-yo yoko in their hometowns. Rinka had a boyfriend who was a classmate, and he tried to convince her to stop going to Touyoko, but she just smoked him out. Hearing this story, Goro was not able to strongly discourage Mai from going to Toyoko.

He said, “If someone denies you a friend or a place you love, you rebel against it. I myself was a youngster myself, so I know how much fun it is to hang out with my friends. I try not to forget that feeling when I interact with Mai.

Goro says he considered going to Kabukicho to try to bring Mai back. But he held off, fearing that if he stepped into the kids’ territory and acted like a protector, Mai would close her mind and lose her refuge outside of Toyoko.

“The more I look on the Internet to find out what kind of place she is in Toyoko, the more I worry…At the end of September, Mai told me she wanted to break up with me. At first, he was sleeping over at her house because she was like an older sister to him, but then he became friends with a boy of about 20 he met at Toyoko and they started dating.

Goro has left Mai’s clothes and daily necessities at home, and sometimes tells Mai’s parents about her safety when she does not return to her parents’ house.

He sometimes tells Mai’s parents that she is safe and sound when she does not return home. I’m worried that if I say no, Mai will turn to aiding and abetting or prostitution, so I meet with her regularly and give her some money.

The “selfie neighborhood,” where people post hashtags on social networking sites, is the basis of interaction in Toyoko. Ryo (pseudonym, 18), who occasionally visits Toyoko, says that the network expands as friends who meet on SNS interact with each other in real life or exchange accounts with friends they meet on the street.

Many of the kids come because they are connected to someone on SNS and are invited to meet or because they want to meet someone on their own. They tend to think they are open to anyone who comes, but because of their strong online connections, it is difficult for adults to get in. I think it will be difficult to completely dismantle the Kids, even if we arrest the parent of the Kids or round them up all together.”

Kids who have lost their place at school or home are dreaming of a peach paradise where they can get all their friends, lovers, and other relationships beside Tor.
