The Wadakura Fountain Park, located in the heart of Tokyo, offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The park, completed in 1961, is situated in the Wadakura section of the Kokyo Gaien National Garden. In 1995, it was renovated to commemorate the wedding of Imperial Prince Akihito and Princess Michiko. The park boasts a grand fountain that reaches heights of 8.5 meters, and an artificial waterfall measuring 5.5 meters high and spanning 30 meters across, which is connected to a drainage system.
Visitors can take a break from the city by sitting on the benches that surround the fountain and enjoying the shade, or even use it as a pit stop while running the Imperial Palace. The park transforms at night, with lighting that creates a relaxed atmosphere for visitors to enjoy.
