Description
The 13th World Jamboree is to be held for nine days starting on August 2 at the Asagiri(Morning Mist) Plateau located at the western foot of Mt. Fuji, Japan, under the sponsorship of the World Boy Scouts League.

The World Jamboree is a gathering of boys and young men held on an International scale once every four years for the purpose of promoting world peace and international goodwill. A total of 20,000 people from as many as 108 countries are to participate in the forthcoming jamboree under the slogan reading, "Mutual Understanding." The Republic of Korea also is sending a 500 member delegation to the jamboree.

The original meaning of the word, "jamboree" used to be a "lively entertainment" or "cheerful part." The boy scouts use this word to describe any outdoor camping, national and international alike. For the purpose of educating and training individual citizens to enable them to serve both their fatherlands' communities as a whole, the boy scouts aim to : 1) Improve and refine personal characters 2) Promote health and physical strength 3) Master useful techniques and skills and 4) Encourage a burning spirit of service to the community.

In the hope that the boy scout movement, which has contributed a great deal to the building and promotion of world peace through the cultivation of international friendship, will produce all the more brilliant and successful results in the field of training and education of youngsters, the Ministry of Communications is to release a postage stamp in honor of this significant occasion.
