The Community Spirit through Roses

Fostering the Community spirit through Roses: Sharing Fukuyama's Heart with Participants and the World

What is "Rose Mind?"

"The Community Spirit through Roses" is a concept that emerged in Fukuyama during its post-war recovery and has evolved over half a century. It symbolizes the spirit of "compassion, kindness, and mutual support" nurtured through the love and cultivation of roses, embodying various sentiments such as peace, the affection required for rose cultivation, and kindness towards individuals and the community.

Promotion of the Community Spirit through Roses

We aim to embody the values of "compassion," "kindness," and "mutual cooperation" that are inherent in the concept of the Community Spirit through Roses. Through the hosting of the convention, we seek to promote and share this spirit with the citizens and participants, and ultimately disseminate it to the world.

The compassion and kindness nurtured through the cultivation of roses as a symbol of peace and postwar recovery have been ingrained in our community. Through the convention, we strive to deepen our connection with the citizens, extend heartfelt hospitality to our guests, and create a fulfilling experience for all participants. Alongside the blooming roses that grace our city, we aim to share the significance of peace with people from around the world, and through the Community Spirit through Roses, we seek to foster a sense of unity and promote the values that embody Fukuyama's spirit. We will continue to nurture this cultural legacy of Fukuyama even after the convention concludes.
