How do I express feeling included in an event/community/etc? I often want to thank people for going out of their way (it seems) to make me feel included or at home.
I usually say something like 紹介してくれてありがとうございました but I would like to be able to emphasize/express that I really appreciate having been made to feel like part of the community/group of friends.
Is there a normal way to say this in Japanese? Thanks!
