The Rotary club of Nagoya Osu was chartered on 12th February 1985 by the Rotary International. We belong to R.I. district 2760.
District 2760 is located in Aichi Prefecture, there are 83 clubs and our main territory is Nagoya City.
We have been working on a number of service activities during 33 years.
We have tried some projects for international service.
We helped to dig a well in a small village of Thailand.
As a result the water problem of the local population was solved.
We also presented some solar power generation equipment to remote mountain area in Nepal.
As a result, many people are able to study and read at night.
For some consecutive years we have been running important projects"Youth Service"
Every years we accept a lot of young students from overseas and we give a chance to study overseas to a lot of Japanese high school students as an exchange program.
They have meaningful experience of studying in a different culture and they learn a lot about the life abroad.
Besides, every years we spend a lot of effort on the community service.We have organized a series of exciting events for Nagoya city community, for example, Takigi Noh (Noh Theater performed at night by a fire), Photo contest, Assistant dogs’ campaign, Dangerous drugs’ campaign and so on.
In our work, we always try to be helpful and we hope all the community enjoys our projects.
We always follow “The four-way test” of Rotary International;
1 Is it the truth?
2 Is it fair to all concerned?
3 Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4 Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
The members of Nagoya Osu Rotary Club are always willing to serve humanity.
The story of the Banner Just as the mention of the Asakusa district of Tokyo will inspire thoughts of the famous, Asakusa-Kannon comes to mind when Japanese speak of the Osu district of Nagoya.
The Nagoya-osu Rotary Banner depicts the Osu-Kannon Temple.
Four distinct features make Osu-Kannon Temple especially famous.
The main temple of Osu-Kannon houses a nationally treasured archive of ancient volumes considered to be important cultural assets of Japan.
Two large statues of protective deities of Buddha stand guard at the main gate.
Once inside the main gate, a traditional Japanese belfry and a large paperlantern,both contributions from women of the congregation,can be found.
Osu-Kannon exists not only as the geographical heart of Nagoya,but it also embodies the character of the people of Nagoya themselves.
