2010 Xmas Greeting from Japan (Y116)

 Greeting from MAYUKO & TAISHI
 of Yokohama Group 116

I have two greeting cards for the scout friends in world.   One in English and another in Chinese and posted in below.   I am 6th grade in school and love POKEMON!  My yong broher is 2nd grade and he will be a Cub from Beaver in next year.

Also, there are additional cards made with my kid brother, DAISHI, who is a beaver scout. Please see the video clip in below for those cards.   I call those "ECO cards" because I used a character clippings from brochures of exhibition, seals of medical firm I got at hospital, also used a package of cookies (Can you tell which one?), et al.

Camporee in Asagiri 2010

International Friendship Program of  
Incheon Council and Yokohama Nanoh District

This year, the scouts and leaders from Incheon Council visited Yokohama and together we have had the Camporee at Asagiri (World and National Jamboree were held in this area) and the Exploring Program of Yokohama Minatomirai (currently APEC is held there) and others.  

This friendship program was conducted over 35 years between Incheon, Korea and our Scout Groups in Yokohama.

This year, it was very hot summer in Japan, but our scout friends from Incheon enjoyed Asagiri and Yokohama with Japanese scouts.  

We all will be looking forward to next Friendship Program with Incheon Scouts.
