Hiroshima” and Edion Peace Wing Hiroshima, the home stadium of Sanfrecce Hiroshima F.C., which was completed in February of this year, are areas where further demand for sports and leisure, including soccer, can be expected in the future.
As the two hotels currently in operation in Hiroshima City with 818 rooms are operating well, we hope to attract more customers in the future and are implementing a dominant strategy (concentrated openings) based on improvements in hotel management and personnel efficiency. Therefore, the area around Hiroshima Station, which is a key transportation hub, has been positioned as a priority area. In Hiroshima City, in addition to the currently operating APA Hotel Hiroshima Ekimae Ohashi (727 rooms in total) and APA Hotel Hiroshima Ekimae (91 rooms in total), APA Hotel Hiroshima Ekimae
