The fountain park is very close to the Imperial Palace and Gardens. The fountains continuously change their water pattern, so it will keep your attention for awhile. Plus, there is lots of space to explore and take pictures.

Wadakura Fountain Park is located In front of one of Imperial Palace gate sites, only 3 minute walk from Tokyo Station. The gate doesn't actually exists. The park is now surrounded by autumn leaves of yellow, orange and red colours. People are enjoying lunch, tea or picnic at free outdoor tables and chairs.

The fountains are amazing with lots of different programs. The rest-place both open air and inside are free to sit there and even have a snack from your rucksack. Or you can sit on the restaurant side and enjoy the meal provided by the nearby Palace Hotel.

It’s a peaceful park around a special fountain, which we appreciated in Kokyo Gai’en. The fountain was originally created in 1961 to commemorate the royal wedding of the crown prince (current emperor). Then, it was re-established in 1995 to commemorate the royal wedding of the current crown prince.

The fountain park offers a moment of calmness in the midst of Tokyo's hustle and bustle. A place where the local office workers come and take a break.
