Description

This khaki-colored outfit is part of a Boy Scout uniform. The two pieces of the uniform include a pair of shorts and a long-sleeved shirt, both made of a cotton blend. The tag on the shirt is in Japanese and translates to "Boy Scout Association of Japan." The shirt has two breast pockets with buttons and two shoulder epaulets with buttons.

The Boy Scouts Association of Japan is the major Scouting organization of Japan, which began as a boys-only organization in 1922. In 1995, the name changed to the Scouting Association of Japan when the organization became coeducational. The Scout emblem represents wisdom and honesty.
