Why Pacela is special ?
Directly connected to Sogo Hiroshima Department Store, the Hiroshima Bus Center and Rihga Royal Hotel Hiroshima and, located a very short distance from the Atomic Bomb Dome, Motomachi Cred-Pacela is always filled with tourists from all over the world and visitors from around Japan. Parking options are also abundant and Pacela Card members may park for up to 3 hours free of charge with purchases or meals exceeding 2,100 yen (*affiliated parking lots only).There are also plenty of nursing rooms and powder rooms, so parents bringing small children along can enjoy their shopping with peace of mind.
What to explore at Pacela?
Pacela has 11 floors. This makes it sound like a mammoth place but it's actually designed in such a way where each floor gets smaller the higher you go, making it rather unlikely for you to get lost. Unlike a lot of other shopping malls, Pacela has been designed with the outside environment in mind. As you make your way up through the different levels you'll find yourself moving from inside to outside, switching from air conditioning to natural air in the blink of an eye. There is definitely something about not being enclosed the whole time in a climate controlled box which makes shopping at Pacela a rather pleasant experience.
Floors 7 to 10 are home to a number of different restaurants and cafes, including Japanese, Chinese, Italian and Vietnamese eateries. There is a big visual menu at the entrance to the restaurant level which signposts what's on offer and where you can locate it. Or, if you prefer, wander around and let the brightly colored plastic food models displayed in the shop windows be your guide.
How to get to Pacela?
A two-minute walk from "Kamiya-cho-nishi Station," accessible from Hiroshima Station by taking a Hiroshima Electric Railway streetcar bound for "Miyajimaguchi" or "Eba."
