We have been supporting Boy Scout activities, helping to foster a rich spirit and sound physique in children and youth by offering opportunities for experiencing activities in a rich natural environment like the sacred shrine forest. We founded the Boy Scouts Chapter, Second Samukawa Group, SAJ in July, 1973. Since then, we have been supporting outdoor activities such as spring and summer camp, and other events for scout members together with local residents. Watching the growth and progress of scout members as they face the future, we hope for their continued growth, and at the same time, recognize our responsibilities for continued engagement in the scout activities.
