Research on the behavior of strollers will contribute largely to the creation of high quality walking spaces. It is said that people can discover both the positive and negative aspects of their towns through daily strolls. For this study we selected two research areas, one rural and the other urban, in order to investigate and analyze stroll behavior in detail. The types of strolls, the walking distances, and the characteristics of road preferences selected in walking routes were analyzed based on data of the two areas. In addition, by comparing the analyses of the two areas, both the similarities and differences of stroller behavior between rural and urban areas were clarified.
