A small park to the east of the Imperial Palace. The Wadakura Fountain Park was opened in 1961 to commemorate the wedding of the Emperor and Empress, and refurbished in 1995 to celebrate the wedding of the Crown Prince and Princess. The design is very modern—concrete with fountains, narrow water channels, and waterfalls. There is also a cafe and restaurant. Best to visit in the evening when the park and fountains are illuminated.
