Caption on reverse: "JAPAN SCOUT LEADER VISITS HERE: Eagle Scout Arthur K. Goto of Honolulu's Explorer Post 82 is shown wishing Count Yorihiro Matsudaira, president of the Boy Scouts Council of Kagawa prefecture, Japan, godspeed as he left aboard a Pan American plane for Tokyo following a two-day visit in Honolulu a week ago last Saturday, as Andy Groenink, deputy scout executive of the Honolulu Boy Scouts Council and Eagle Scout Richard Y. Mitsunaga of Troop 10, Honolulu, look on. Count Matsudaira was enroute home from an extended visit in the United States during which he was a leader of the delegation of 22 Japanese Boy Scouts to the National Jamboree of the Boy Scouts of America held at the Irvine Ranch in southern California in July and later spent a month at the Schiff Scout reservation in New Jersey attending the national training school for scout executives. He also visited the national office of the Boys Scouts of America in New York City where he was entertained by Arthur A. Schuck, chief scout executive.--(Masao Miyamoto photo)."
