Abstract and Keywords

This article describes some suggestive findings on how young adults in Tokyo use mobile- and PC-based Internet resources outside of work or school. The primary interest is to explore leisure activities – and most notably, leisure outings – and how they are supported online. The findings presented here are initial results from an extensive research project designed to explore how Tokyo youth spend leisure time, and how they tend to coordinate, plan, and otherwise support leisure activities. The ultimate goal of the project is to help identify issues and opportunities for designing new online media to support leisure activities, especially leisure outings.

Keywords: young adults, Japanese youth, online media, leisure activities, leisure time
