The park is split into five areas like Hammock Day where you can kick back in one of the hammocks while listening to music, pick up some produce at the Farmer’s Market, do some morning yoga, and more. The park will also have a line of trucks and wagons selling food, drink, items, and more.
RAYARD Hisaya-odori Park
RAYARD has also opened its second shopping complex at Hisaya-odori Park following the opening of RAYARD MIYASHITA PARK in Shibuya. The complex houses 35 restaurants and shops, 22 of which have never opened a branch in Nagoya before, which will deliver fashion, sports, food, communication, and so on.
A variety of popular cafes in RAYARD are opening in Nagoya for the first time, like the Snoopy-themed PEANUTS Cafe, the the bakery and cafe ESPRESSO D WORKS which is known for its “100 one hundred” bread which is world’s first made with 100% water content, and Karuizawa’s very popular cafe and restaurant Eloise’s Cafe.
There’ll be plenty of sweet treats to tuck into too, like crepes from ROCCA&FRIENDS CREPERIE to TEA which is so popular in Osaka that people can be waiting up to 2 hours in line, matcha desserts from Kyoto-based sweet shop Shimizu-Ippoen, and bonbons from South Korea’s number one cafe Cafe de paris.
If you’re wanting a real meal, enjoy some casual Italian dining at Arcoba which is managed by the former head chef of Kyoto’s famous restaurant IL GHIOTTONE. Or perhaps yakiniku from Yakiniku Tokugawaen which uses Japanese black wagyu from Kyushu as the main meat on its menu. Kouji MARUTANI will also be there serving up local ingredients from Mikawa, food made with koji, a variety of craft sakes, and more.
RAYARD Hisaya-odori Park will offer a wide range of interactive experiences too such as at the creative community cafe FabCafe Nagoya which makes use of 3D printing and digital fabrication, Snow Peak which provides a live view of nature, T4 NAGOYA where you can play ping pon indoors and outdoors, narifuri which sells bicycle apparel, and so on.
There is much and more to see at RAYARD Hisaya-odori Park, so if you’re in Japan this year, head to Nagoya to enjoy the autumn atmosphere.

Alice in Wonderland Themed Afternoon Tea Buffet ‘Lost in Europe’ Heads to Nagoya
This spring, Hilton Nagoya is set to serve up a special afternoon tea set and buffet plan at its first floor all-dining restaurant IN PLACE 3-3. The theme of the afternoon tea line-up, which will be served either as a set-only plan or the set plus a buffet, is ‘Lost in Europe.’ Fans of Lewis Carroll’s beloved novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland can look forward to jumping in the rabbit hole as they indulge in a colourful and delicious line-up that sends them straight to wonderland.
The plans will run for three months during which three different menu line-ups will be served, each with a European feel to them as Alice finds her curiosity tending away from Japanese cuisine to the delectable assortments of overseas.
Spain will serve as the first menu. Travelling to Spain, Alice finds the country one overflowing with creativity in the arts, so says the story of this fun afternoon tea. Dishes will be plated with desserts fusing together Spain’s food culture with that of Wonderland, traditional Spanish desserts, sweet treats inspired by Spanish art, and more. Many of the irresistible items will also be made with almonds – Spain being the second largest producer of almonds in the world.
Inside the restaurant, diners will feel like they have travelled to a Spanish rendition of Wonderland with a mix of styles from both locations, such as Spanish sunflowers, mosaic tiles, stained glass windows, and more.
