For years now this picture has been circulating on the internet of a waterpark that is packed with people and features the ironic caption:
“Welcome to breathtaking Tokyo Water Park where you can wash away the pressure and stress of the overcrowded city and relax with your friends in the soothing enjoyment of sun, fun and splashing.”
It’s implied that the caption was originally included in advertising material for the waterpark.
My dad recently forwarded me a page full of pictures with the theme of overpopulation, and this picture was among them. I finally decided to try tracking down that waterpark - and I can’t. For starters, “Tokyo Water Park” doesn’t appear to exist. But a Google search turned up this list of water parks in Japan, so I searched Google Maps (in satellite mode) for each park name, and none of the parks I found resembles the photo at my first link (rectangular pool with channels parallel to long sides, with what appears to be a grandstand and/or golf driving range behind it).
Does the park featured in that photo actually exist? If so, is it in Japan? Or is that photo a bullshit composite?
