This paper investigates the factors that directly and indirectly affect the relationship of two types of mobility among young Japanese: travel and migration. Accumulation of cultural capital is the most significant determinant of future travel. While personality maturation, which is an outcome of cultural, social, and symbolic capital, has a significant impact on the decision to travel in the future, it has limited explanatory power for the intention to migrate. Other factors, such as travel experience and gender of the respondents, also influence the travel–migration nexus.
