This fountain park has been constructed in order to celebrate imperial wedding of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko in 1961, and renewed after the Prince's wedding in 1995. A peaceful and relaxing sensation will flow into visitor's souls, leaving back Tokyo's frenzy at once as...More

Located between Tokyo Station and Imperial Palace. Some water is there, but not allowed to step in. When I was there, no fountain was working. To me, this is just an open area. Got a bit surprised seeing this place is listed here.

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.

I went to Tokyo on business in May and September 2016. The Wadakura Fountain Park is near the Palace Hotel. From it, you can see the Imperial Palace across the street. You walk by fountains and a bridge. Once you exit the park by crossing...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
