2015 World Scout Jamboree Japan

    The kanji character “wa” means harmony, unity, friendship, and peace. It is in this spirit that the Scout Association of Japan will welcome Scouts from around the world to the 2015 World Scout Jamboree, Wa: A Spirit of Unity.

    From July 28 to August 8, 2015, more than 30,000 Scouts and leaders from 161 countries around the world will converge on Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan, on reclaimed land in southwestern Japan for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.

    The event brings together Boy Scouts, Venturers, leaders, and staff and provides opportunities to raise awareness of global issues, explore the environment, participate in community service, make friends from around the world, and deepen understanding of developments in science and technology.
