Greeting from The 2014 JCI Handa President

第51代理事長 近藤 勝美It is an honor for JCI Handa to be able to organize the
2014 JCI Academy. Located in Aichi Prefecture, Handa is a
city rich with history. Each year the city celebrates its
traditions with festivals featuring as many as 31 different
floats. Warehouses from the Edo period still stand and
from its many canals the smell of vinegar wafts through
the city.
We invite you to the world of Niimi Nankichi, Japan’ s Hans Christian Anderson, in a city
which blooms with two million Amaryll flowers in autumn and whic h is filled with red
brick buildings still alive with the spirit of the Meiji era.
Handa is easily accessible from Chubu Centrair International Ai rport as well as from
Nagoya and the Chita peninsula; surrounded by the sea, it is bl essed with rich natural
beauty and a temperate climate.
The JCI Academy program receives the support of the government, members of the
public and the local community. It also makes excellent use of the culture and unique
characteristics of the local area. It provides unique opportuni ties for participants to
nurture global friendships, and deepen their mutual understandi ng with one another.
Participants, representing the global community, have the chanc e to develop into
world-class leaders, capable of achieving the positive transfor mation of the entire world.

We look forward to welcoming all of you, with a spirit of hospitality.
