Japan to host 23rd World Scout Jamboree in 2015

Japan has just won the bid to host the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in 2015.

Announced in the Plenary Hall at ICC Jeju on Jeju Island at the 38th World Scout Conference, Japan was ecstatic to hear the results with the Chairman of the bidding committee, Mr. Osamu Hirose saying: “We are very happy and we are sure that the Jamboree will be a very good opportunity to educate young people, and also very good chance to show how Scouts around the world are creating a better world.”

The Jamboree will be located on Kirarahama or Kirara Beach in Yamaguchi Prefecture. The Japanese word “kirara” means mica: Kirara Beach offers a beautiful landscape in front of which the Seto Inland Sea glitters in the sunlight just like mica.

    Can you please send me any information when it is available for the 23rd World Jamboree?

  2. Is there no concern with nuclear fallout and radiation & sending Scouts over to Japan?

    I would love to attend in 2015, but can it be considered safe?
