The aim of this paper is to reveal how young people experience the local labor market in their local social networks or communities on the transition process to the local 'Adult.' In Japan, the difficulties among the young people in their occupational lives have been the serious social issue over the transition, and many studies have described their social position and condition. Especially, the relation between young people's <labor-life> world and their social networks has focused on as the realities of their lives. However, the earlier studies have missed the impacts of the locality on the experiences of young people, so this paper tries to interpret how young people make the social relationships with local labor market, the local social networks or communities through a sociological fieldwork in a rural area. According to the young people who have raised and worked there, the information, shared experiences or discourses flowing the local communities and peer groups were the important materials to organize the reality of the local labor market. By reference to this reality, they could narrate the Model Story of the locality, and reposition their own experiences in this story and their self-identity on the process to the local adult. Finally, it is indicated that analyses of the negotiation between young people's experiences and the representations of the locality offer some penetrating insights for the studies of youth transition.
