Hanayashiki Amusement Park, Taito

(240+ reviews on the web)
Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
The oldest amusement park in Japan, Hanayashiki Amusement Park offers a truly homegrown theme park experience. Around since 1853, this charming, old-school neighborhood entertainment park features a variety of vintage amusement activities suitable for all ages. More for romantic and family types than thrill-seekers, it has everything you'd expect from an urban amusement park: a small ferris wheel, the oldest operable roller coaster in the country, carousels, live prize-fighting performances, and even a mini-zoo. The park sits around a 10-minute walk from Asakusa train station. See Hanayashiki Amusement Park and all Tokyo has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tokyo travel itinerary maker.

  • We spent a whole day at the amusement park with our two primary school aged kids. We had a ball! Yes it is an old amusement park with fantastically simple and clunky rides. So if your kids have Disney or Universal Studios as their standard expectation, they will be dissapointed. But if you want an original Tokyo experience thats fun and great value, look no further. Another bonus is that the queues for the rides are mostly less than 15 min, unlike the 2 or more hours at the fancy theme parks. If you have primary-school aged kids (or are a kid at heart) I would highly recommend Hanayashiki. You will have a day to remember.
  • You can't spent a whole day here. As Japan's oldest and possible smallest theme park, please do not expect anything great, everything is very old and themed. The ghost house is weird and predictable, the roller coaster is slow and jerky and the games are not so well made. It is nice to see some Japanese nostalgia, but it is rather over-priced. I spent about 5 hours here and did everything.
  • Good amusement park at downtown (so called 'Shita machi') . You can enjoy small but funny amusement.
  • I wasn't expecting too much when I came here with my family (three kids 9 and under). We even contemplated getting only one adult unlimited pass. I am so glad we splurged, all of us got the unlimited rides pass and we had so much fun! Many of the rides are very unique compared to ones I've seen in North America. There aren't a ton of English explanations, which was mostly fine except on the scary rides. For example, Beware the haunted Kabuki house on the second floor if you have little kids. I would have liked a heads up on that - it was super scary. This was an amazing day out in Asakusa.
  • A fun theme park that's not to big and easy to go to from Tokyo. Recommended place for a good fun date, general admission is 1000yen
