Then in June, while it was no big incident, when she was on her way home after school one evening, she was somehow stalked by someone though it was still bright out. Magazines and television regularly make specials focusing on the current trend of how mobile phones are used by young people. Given these apparent contradictions and conflicting motivations, what then are the main reasons for a parent's decision regarding their child's keitai ownership? Furthermore, it sought to observe whether there were differences in such factors as their current usage of keitai. For parents who had initially wanted to avoid having their child carry a keitai—despite their child's strong desire to have one—their child's keitai ownership eventually becomes unavoidable.

As of 2013 [update], the Japanese mobile phone market is broadly divided into a high-end, consisting of smartphones (スマートフォン ( sumātofon), abbreviated as スマフォ ( sumafo) or スマホ ( sumaho)); mid-range, consisting of feature phones ( garakei); and a low-end, consisting of Personal Handy-phone System (PHS, handy phone ( ハンディフォン, handifon) or pitchi ( ピッチ), from PHS ( ピーエッチエス, pīetchiesu)). By splitting the characters into alpha-numeric characters, it extends the possible over-all length of the message. Daisuke Okabe is Lecturer at the Graduate School of Media and Governance, Keio University, Shonan Fujisawa Campus, Japan.Following Dobashi ( Citation2007), then, and based on the interview survey results, this paper now examines the emerging patterns of “circumstances” that make the keitai, once felt by parents to be “unnecessary” for children, an item of “necessity”. Because a keitai is a medium that parents prefer to keep their child from using if possible, it is not always bought right away even if the child has a strong desire to have one. Keitai has not only influenced the younger generation but also has altered the definition of privacy, shined a light on the importance of connections, and the importance of personalization. The book allowed me to relate it as best I could to my own experiences and life but offered little expertise to assist me in doing so. Handsets marketed for use by children are equipped with standardized features such as crime prevention alarms and GPS functioning as child security measures to appeal to parents.

to the reason that “there are roads, parks and parking lots in the neighborhood that are dark and are largely unfrequented (30. In other words, while parents generally seem to claim that risk and anxiety management are primary reasons for keitai use within families and especially by younger children, this does not seem to be the actual basis for the decision to get a keitai for their children. The only way we can fully understand the astonishing development of keitai services is through a multi-perspective analysis of Japan's youth, the cutting-edge lead users of mobile technology. This type of response was clearly more prevalent than other reasons given, which varied from the more specific “because community bonds are weak, and I don't really know the faces of even neighboring residents” (33.At first, its core users were professional men (mostly) who needed to be reached at all times for business purposes, thereby inviting pity for these work-related impositions. However, the purposes of keitai use and the factors that led to its initial ownership among these students are different for children in elementary school and for those in junior high and above. In addition to this, keitai addiction, defined as a child's incontrollable compulsion to contact friends to the point of sacrificing study or sleep, has become an issue of concern as well (what in fact is the greatest concern for parents is that the core party of contact for those children of junior high school age and older shifts from their parents to their friends).

This pattern is also seen further on in the book, where chapters eleven and fourteen elaborate extensively on topics that are covered in chapter six.The Japanese term for mobile phone, keitai (roughly translated as "something you carry with you"), evokes not technical capability or freedom of movement but intimacy and portability, defining a personal accessory that allows constant social connection. E: When I lent her my keitai telling her to use it for e-mailing, for a time, she had a ton of e-mail exchanges with her friends. The digital selfie originates from purikura (Japanese shorthand for "print club"), which are Japanese photo sticker booths. A majority of the Japanese population own cellular phones, most of which are equipped with enhancements such as video and camera capabilities.
