This park was created to celebrate the wedding of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko. The fountains are illuminated during the night, creating fantastic night views.
The Wadakura Fountain Park, completed in 1961, is located at the Wadakura area of the Kokyo Gaien National Garden. In 1995, the park was renovated to commemorate the wedding of Imperial Prince Akihito and Princess Michiko. Its grand fountain splashes water up to 8.5 meters, and the curtain of an artificial waterfall, 5.5 meters high and 30 meters across, is joined by a draining system. At night, these fountains are illuminated to create a fantastic vista in contrast to the daytime. The park also has a monument engraved with a poem by the Emperor, a restaurant, and a glass-covered rest area overlooking the entire park. There is also an information booth that explains the natural beauty of the Kokyo Gaien Imperial Garden. The park is located close to the #2 and #6 exits of the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line's Nijubashi Station.
