“Peacecle”, the Rental Cycle for Traveling Around Hiroshima City

#Attraction ,#Cycling ,#Outdoor ,#Transportation ,#Travel Tip


In Hiroshima city, there are various sightseeing attractions, such as the Atomic Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial Park. However, traveling between each location one by one takes up time and consumes a lot of energy. So, what I recommend is taking advantage of a rental bicycle! The “Peacecle” rental bicycle can be preregistered from overseas, and it’s very convenient!

What Are the Benefits?


More than anything else, the appeal of the “Peacecle” is the ability to efficiently travel around Hiroshima’s sightseeing spots. There are “Peacecle” ports scattered around the city, and bicycles can be rented and returned at any of these dedicated ports. Also, because they are all electric bicycles, you can comfortably ride up slopes and long distances. It is gaining popularity among tourists as a method for freely cycling between tourist spots.

How to Use


When using “Peacecle”, we recommend preregistering on your PC or mobile phone. It supports foreign languages and the credit card payment function is very convenient. Registering in advance will assure you a smooth rental process during your visit.

There are also unattended registration machines at some ports. However, please be aware that the only payment method at these locations are transportation IC cards. Bicycles can also be rented at the management office located in Kyobashi-cho, Minami-ku. Once you get to the port, let’s rent the bicycle!

Because it is a bicycle with electric assistance, you can check the remaining capacity of the battery by turning on the power. Since you can get on and off freely at the nearest port, please take advantage of “Peacecle” to enjoy nearby tourist locations.

Demo Course

Finally, we will introduce a sightseeing demo course using “Peacecle”.  Within Hiroshima City, dedicated rental ports are concentrated in the Kamiya-cho area, where the Hiroshima Castle and Atomic Bomb Dome is located.

The Hiroshima Castle, which symbolizes Samurai culture, is beautiful to see from a distance across the moat. It is very easy to get to this location with the rental cycle.

The Hiroshima Museum of Art, located next to the Hiroshima Castle, features French and Japanese modern art collections centered on Impressionism. In addition to the exhibit, it is also a pleasure to feel the four seasons in the courtyard of the museum.

The Atomic Bomb Dome can be viewed from 360 degrees. By riding the rental cycle, you can view the different expressions of the dome from various angles.

The Orizuru Tower located next to the Atomb Bomb Dome is a new spot with stores, cafes, and an observation deck. The observation deck where you can overlook the city of Hiroshima is gaining popularity among tourists. Cycling through Hiroshima City will surely be a memorable experience. If you want to visit tourist attractions efficiently, by all means, please take advantage of the “Peacecle”.
