la place (Mermaid Cafe, Hiroshima University Branch)

About "la place"

"la place" is the nickname of the glass-walled building in Satake Square in front of the Central Library. It was built with environmental considerations and has solar panels on the roof. It was established to serve as a hub facility where students, faculty members and others could gather at Satake Square and the surrounding area for "intellectual festivities" (cultural activities befitting of a university having a free and academic atmosphere). The Hiroshima University Branch of the Mermaid Cafe is open for business and ready to serve students, faculty members and local residents.
