The aim of this study is to redefine cultural practices in the perspective of temporal (social, cultural, biological) reorganization. we have done an enquete research on the patterns of leisure activities to the participants in the adult education institutions. They are studying in the cities in Kansai area such as Kyoto, Nagaoka, Kawanishi, Otsu. At the same time, we have conducted the research on the relationship between free time and adult education in UK and France.
The survey shows that there are three different patterns--1) the case influencing the variable age, 2) the case influencing the variable sex, 3) the case showing similar behavior between older men and younger women. There is also a great difference between older men and older women in cultural practices. The time allotted to the house work by men is much shorter than that of women, whether they are workers or not.
Various surveys in France confirm that the patterns of sexual division of work as well as the sexual division of leisure activities have not greatly changed for last ten years. In the UK,the government is much less interested in supporting the cultural activities such as adult education. We have indicated the social, economic, cultural inequality on leisure when leisure activities are dominated by private comapanies.
