PACIFICO Yokohama (Pacific Convention Plaza Yokohama) will start “prayer mat and Qibla compass free rental service” for our Muslim guests on July 13 2014, in cooperation with Yokohama Culture and Tourism Bureau.
We have prepared five sets of prayer mats and compass to lend out to event organizers so that their Muslim guests can use them in the space the organizer will have prepared. Event organizers used to have to make special arrangements each time to meet the requests of Muslim participants; from now on this new service allows them to lend Muslim participants the items necessary for prayer at any time. We will start this service at the 18th World Congress of Sociology (July 13 (Sun) - 19 (Sat), 2014).
Furthermore, from the 1st of August 2014 we are planning to start a free rental service also on an individual baisis for visitors entering the structure.
