After this experience, the children will rethink about their lives and attitudes. Children who accept differences in cultures and understand people from other cultures will make a major impact in the future. Here in Fukuyama, we have our original spirit called Rose Mind. While children are welcomed by Fukuyama citizens with the Rose Mind, the children will feel the spirit of “hospitality, caring, and helping each other,” and be empowered to act with the OMOIYARI sprit. Accordingly, they will contribute to world peace in the future.
