Theme of the 23rd World Scout Jamboree

The Jamboree site is a flat land with an area of 2.8 km north to south by 1 km east to west. There is a natural park on the site, where wildlife living on Kirara-hama is preserved. Millions of wild birds visit Kirara-hama every year. In addition, the Jamboree site is equipped with water supply and sewage systems, as well as a sports dome and a swimming pool that can be used for programs. The holding of a Jamboree will create a minimum of environmental and economic burden. Access to the site is easy by high-speed transportation systems such as airplanes and Shinkansen bullet trains.

The site is located 30 minutes from Shin-Yamaguchi Station on the JR Shinkansen line, which is capable of carrying a large number of passengers. Within a 2-hour radius of the site, four international airports serve, out of which, Fukuoka International Airport and Kansai International Airport are located west and east of the site.
