Minami-ku (南区 Minami-ku?) is one of seven wards of Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan, located in the south of the city. It is bordered by Naka-ku, Higashi-ku, Nishi-ku, and the city of Iwata and Pacific Ocean. The 5th largest ward of Hamamatsu in terms of area and 4th in terms of population, much of Minami-ku is still rural, with farms and rice fields.

Minami-ku was created on April 1, 2007 when Hamamatsu became a city designated by government ordinance (a "designated city").

Minami-ku is served by Takatsuka Station on the Tōkaidō Main Line railway.

Suzuki has its headquarters in Minami-ku.[1]
