    nowhere kid

    One dictionary here gives 'nowhere kid' as
    its equivalent in English.
    HIKIKOMORI is a (young) person who secludes
    him/herself from outside and stay home practically
    all the time. Similar to NEET I think, but the point
    is that they shut themselves from outside.
    Are there any English equivalent for that?
    Thank you.

    We have "Billy no mates" in BrE. BTW I'd never heard NEET until I went to Japan

    Oh, you came to Japan. When was it? Why didn't you call me? LOL
    Well, I hear that 'NEET' was originated in England.
    Not in Education, Employment or Training.
    Anyway, 'Bill no mates'. Great! Thanks.
