Wadakura Fountain Park is a park located in Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo.

In the background are the skyscrapers of Otemachi, Tokyo.
This park is located in the middle of Japan's largest office district, making it a true urban oasis😊✨

You can walk from Tokyo Station, so it's perfect for a walk !

If you cross the outer moat of the Imperial Palace, which is also the ruins of Edo Castle, by bridge, you will arrive at Wadakura Fountain Park⛲

The large fountain shown in the first photo was built in 1961 to commemorate the marriage of His Majesty the Emperor Emeritus.
After that, it was developed as Wadakura Fountain Park in 1995🌳

As you can see in the photo above, there are fountains of various shapes in the park, and you won't get tired of looking at them✨

In autumn, the rows of ginkgo trees along Gyoko Street turn yellow, making for a wonderful sight !😄

The office district has a busy atmosphere on weekdays, but on weekends you can take a leisurely stroll☕
There are many historical sites around the Imperial Palace, so it would be a good idea to visit them together👍
