the spirit of Fukuyama, termed "Rose Mind"
- What is "Rose Mind?"
"Rose mind" is a word that was born in the course of more than half a century since the postwar reconstruction of Fukuyama. It shows the spirit of "compassion, kindness, and mutual help" that is nurtured through loving and raising roses, and contains various thoughts such as peace, the affection necessary for growing roses, and the kindness to people and towns. Officially, the theme "Engage the Rose Mind" of "Fukuyama Rose Festival 1999" is the first use of this word.
- Promotion of Rose Mind
We will embody the spirit of "compassion," "kindness," and "mutual cooperation" contained in the "Rose Mind," aim to spread the word to the citizens through the holding of the tournament, and share it with the tournament participants to disseminate it to the world.
The compassion and kindness towards people and towns nurtured by entrusting the realization of a peaceful society and postwar reconstruction to roses and raising them with love has been passed down as the "Rose Mind."Through the tournament, we aim to further penetrate the citizens, welcome them with heartfelt hospitality, and aim for a tournament that will satisfy the participants of the tournament.In addition, along with the roses that are in full bloom throughout the city, we will share the preciousness of peace with the people of the world, share the "Rose Mind" that is the heart of Fukuyama with the participants of the tournament, disseminate it to the world, and after the tournament. Will continue to take root as a culture of Fukuyama.
