This chapter highlights the features of background and setting that make Fuji-no-Sato stand out as a unique whole. The first task in presenting Fuji-no-Sato as a culture-specific set of social patterns is to show, in broad strokes, its typical kinds of interaction. Under what circumstances do people usually come together and why? What features of the setting distinguish this from other communities and give it internal consistency? The second task is to explore in some detail those cultural norms governing interpersonal behavior that are especially relevant. Only then can we examine the characteristic social problems and processes that result: the problem of controlling social interaction, the socialization of new residents, and the establishment and maintenance of friendship.

Keywords:   Fuji-no-Sato, retirement communities, social interaction, aged, elderly, socialization, friendship
