The purpose of this study was to identify if there were differences in leisure involvement between 34 Japanese elders residing in Japan and 34 Japanese American elders residing in the United States. The Leisure and Recreation Involvement (LRI) and its subscales were used to analyze the differences between the two populations.
The results revealed that there were significant differences in importance of leisure, showing that the Japanese elder respondents residing in Japan felt more importance of leisure than Japanese American elder respondents did. No significant differences were found in overall leisure involvement and in the meaning of leisure between the two populations.
