Abstract

In the context of geographical “emotional turn”, urban leisure began to pay attention to the locality reflected by the leisure subject and the “human-land relationship” of the city. This study takes Xi’an cricket fighting as an example, analyzes the coupling relationship between this leisure style and the local time and space by interpreting the local cognitive system and the local map of urban leisure, and using GIS analysis and in-depth interviews. It also reveals the spatial attributes, local meaning, and spiritual functions of urban leisure locality from three levels: material, social, and spiritual. The conclusions show that: (1) the attributes of nature, landscape and space reflect the material functions of urban leisure locality. (2) historical, cultural, institutional, and social aspects reflect the social functions of urban leisure locality, and also reflect the local consciousness and life characteristics. (3) The urban culture reflected by leisure style and life pursuit embodies the spiritual function of urban leisure locality.
