New in Saitama: Heuvel Cafe on the Hill

August 1, 2020 @ 09:00 - August 16, 2020 @ 17:00

Heuvel Cafe on the HIll Higashimatsuyama

Heuvel cafe on the hill is a small, but picturesque cafe with a view, in the Higashimatsuyama Agriculture Park. The park reopened exactly a year before the cafe, on August 1st 2019. It had been closed for a year for a make over! Unfortunately, in modernizing the park, they removed thousands of poppies which the park had been famous for. However, not to complain because the new park is great for fruit and vegetable picking. And at a reasonable price.

The cafe building was actually completed around the time the park reopened. However, for reasons unknown they didn’t open it. They set an opening date of July 2020. The opening was pushed back on account of the Coronavirus outbreak. The cafe will open on Saturday August 1st. Until the 16th the cafe is giving a free little strawberry dishes to customers.

For the last year you have been able to enter the cafe on Saturdays and Sundays and use it as a rest area. It is quite comfortable, but it has a great view perched as it is on the top of a hill. You can see out over Higashimatsuyama and Kumagaya. And right now you can also see sunflowers, which bloom annually in the park in August. I was actually up there on the 19th of July and the sunflowers were only sprouts, but as you can see in the featured photo (which is from the official web page) the sunflowers are in bloom now. The park is quite picturesque for a lot of the year, particularly in spring when the stunning cherry blossoms and rapeseed grow. You can see more photos of the park and more information here (click).

Throughout the day you can get drinks and a strawberry dessert like kakigori. Between 11 am and 2 pm they have a small light lunch menu, drinks and desserts on offer. And from 2 pm to 5 pm they have an afternoon menu. The last order for the afternoon menu is 4 pm for eating in and 4.30 pm for take out.


The cafe opens from 9 am to 5 pm, with last order at 4 pm, from Tuesdays to Sundays. It is closed on Mondays.
