RAYARD is new initiative by Mitsui Fudosan for providing new value and experiences to visitors by integrating and managing public parks, which are public spaces for people of all ages and genders to visit and enjoy, together with retail properties. The name RAYARD incorporated the theme of a place where new value is created through the exchange of various people, goods, and concepts, in multi-layered interaction.” It also incorporates the meanings of “layer” with “ray” (sunlight) and “yard” (garden) to provide an association with a sunlit garden.
The newly opening RAYARD MIYASHITA PARK is the first retail property in the RAYARD brand series. The third floor of the North Block features an expansive pedestrian space where visitors can enjoy the bustle of the town and the greenery of the park. Moreover, the entire property is covered with a canopy of green, so that MIYASHITA PARK and RAYARD MIYASHITA PARK have the overall design of a park.
Furthermore, on September 18, 2020 (Friday), the second property under the RAYARD brand is to open under the name, “RAYARD Hisaya-odori Park” in Hisaya-odori Park, Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture. The project is being developed as a Park-PFI project together with Nagoya City.

KITH was founded by creative director Ronnie Fieg in 2011 in New York. It is a new shop that brings together original brands and select goods for men, women, and kids in the luxury market.
The store currently has outlets in New York, Brooklyn, Miami, London, and Los Angeles. The Tokyo store opening in RAYARD MIYASHITA PARK will be KITH’s first international flagship store.
The KITH Tokyo store will offer original apparel for men, women, and kids, as well as a selection of footwear. The two-story shop will feature a design incorporating symbolic elements of KITH that express the brand’s world view, creating a sensory experience of the familiar within the new. The face of the store is 30.48 m in length, roughly the same as the SoHo flagship store in New York, and the exterior walls are covered with Carrara marble tiles arranged in the brand’s signature herringbone pattern. On one side of the store’s two outside display windows a Nike Air Force 1 custom art installation in the KITH color palette is displayed. The KITH Tokyo store is the first in the world to display the newly created silhouette in place of the Nike Air Jordan motive that KITH has produced until now.
