Japan-U.S. Comparison Study of Influences of Serious Leisure in Lifelong Learning Policy
We are going to compare Japan and the United States’ activities that are generally called hobbies and serious leisure considered in lifelong learning policies under neoliberalism.


My deepest gratitude for your acceptance of the research grant application. By refocusing on lifelong learning theory from a different perspective, other than relearning for work, I hope to provide basic data for the discussion of educational policies.
