Hanayashiki Amusement Park, Taito

3.6
#3 of 14 in Theme Parks in Tokyo
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. Make Hanayashiki Amusement Park a part of your Tokyo vacation plans using our Tokyo trip itinerary site .

  • Small but nice amusement park suited for small children. This is what a simple theme park looks like before big corporation types like Disneyland or Universal Studios came about. Affordable and not so...  more »

  • I went with my friends family. Bought a pass, but the five-hour stay, eventually bought a ticket is cheap. But without worrying about money, caught in the bathroom I thought it is 4 years old and younger will be free, so it's economical. For lunch I ate ramen 550 yen. It was passable.

  • 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.
  • THE OLDEST FUN PARK IN TOKYO . ENTER IN TIME MACHINE 30 YEARS BACK WHEN WE WAS KIDS NOSTALGIC PERSON I RECOMMEND
  • 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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
