Let’s live as Rotarians together with young fellows in era of drastic changes post 50th anniversary
Above is a phrase of 15 years ago by Mr. Naraji Hashimoto, the 38th Chairman, expressing his intensive love for the Rotary Club.
Taking 65th anniversary as an opportunity, we would like to succeed his will as firm identity, unique character and admiration, to become “Southern Wind” together.


We decided to hold up below as our club motto of 2017-2018.

「凜として 和やかに」
〜共に「南の風」となる〜
Southern Wind is our principle which we need to cherish the most


 Kyoto Minami Rotary Club has been a dignified club with strictness, purity and impressiveness since it was established. We are also a peaceful and attractive club where members are keeping frank and friendly relationships. This year, we would like to share and confirm tradition, formality, dignity of Kyoto Minami Rotary Club hereunder.
 One of the principles of Basho poet found in “Okuno Hosomichi” written by Basho Matsuo the famous haiku poet, is “「不易流行」i.e. Unchangeableness”. 「不易」means universal truth beyond eras, and 「流行」means principle renovated by the change of eras and circumstances.
 Kyoto Minami Rotary Club has been developed to become as one of the admirable and prominent large clubs in Japan with more than 220 members and approximately 20 new members join every year.
 However, on the other hand, members are aging and retirement of experienced members are increasing. We need to consider unity as one club members, including whether hand over among generations, and from experienced to freshmen is duly performed.

 In RI Regulation Committee 2016, easing of right of autonomy was proposed and discretionary range of club has been expanded. As a result, we need to clarify how we want our club to be in the future, and be brave and responsible to flexibly adopt detailed rules which are most appropriate to achieve our target.
 Under this circumstance, all members need to contribute to sustain and share the club culture, by strengthening friendships as club mates and understanding and respecting each other, cherishing sprit of tolerance, and standing together in case of need.

 In order to maintain our unique culture of Kyoto Minami Rotary Club, each member, as Rotarian, should study, understand and share the fundamental principle “Southern Wind”, actively absorb new wind, target to be innovative, not to become old fashioned or valueless.

 Let’s arouse our basic club culture with continuous love and pride as members of Kyoto Minami Rotary Club,

「凜として 和やかに」
〜共に「南の風」となる〜
Southern Wind is our principle which we need to cherish the most


We would like to promote our activities with this motto this year.
