The City of Hiroshima has been promoting an urban development with the image of an “International City of Peace and Culture” in order to create a community that is open to the world. In July 1989, as one event to mark the centennial year of Hiroshima’s municipal status, the International Conference Center Hiroshima（ICCH）opened within the hallowed ground of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. The ICCH is used for various purposes such as exhibitions and parties. Its large auditorium, which can accommodate 1,504 people, is ideal for concerts, lectures, and domestic and international conferences. The ICCH also includes the International Conference Hall, as well as small, medium, and large conference rooms. In all, the ICCH has five floors, three above ground and two basement floors.
