Hanayashiki Amusement Park, Taito

3.5
#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 .

    I went on a Saturday afternoon. And many thriving families and lovers with the roller coaster, 30 minutes waiting. But adults can enjoy the rides themselves are often small ones saying "amusement park along elementary school", and is, very small amusement park, also screams as two, three have. Many people among the adults on Saturday because of what many people see couples dating". Tickets "and more than a junior high school student 1,000 yen" + rides free pass 2300 Yen = 3300 yen, use the convenience store "JTB" ticket presale "entry + free passes = 2,700 yen", 600 Yen deals more. (Nearest to Hanayashiki Amusement Park and family Mart computer terminals, even search "Hanayashiki" and "amusement park" in advance "JTB" ticket can I buy advance tickets) so far in three families, bought the tickets at the nearest convenience store, "adults 600 yen discount x 2" + " Children 500 yen discount "= it is recommended to buy tickets at a convenience store, will pass purchased because it was"in all, 1,700 yen discount"Hanayashiki Amusement Park entrance gates from 5 min. walk. Should be confirmed because there are some other JAF discounts, and discounts. Small amusement park, offers food that tastes better than the amusement of the other. (Large amusement or a bad amusement park food often is) were also quite Dad in the fried chicken + beer, slowly. Eat large amusement park in Marion crepes too is booming, so is the feeling that Camelot. Hanayashiki theater troupe member who shows and "narrow grounds is the fullest packed with rides, restaurants, shows and shooting, and very substantial" amusement park. Early childhood-elementary school grade children and really enjoy.

    Attraction not afraid to buy a free pass because most are things like averaging over in parent-child. Safe type things (for example, taxi drivers and mini Ferris wheel car carousel) and rides a little thrill too play enough, and scary movie series also because it ages well. Don't like roller coasters are fun at short distance slightly scary and fun. The Carnival rides are child Favorites took about 4 times. Resident I have children in the lower grades anyway, pretty nice.

    His historic fourth wife "Edo" Furyu "baked Edo's gun", chanced on a small sign at Hanayashiki Amusement Park before the shop. Feel the history wall sign colored paper. First experience and say it was too 2:00 PM, "Okay, all I'll teach." first of all, taught old fashioned ingredients, seasoning and bake and eat. A bit by changing tastes savory and delicious. "Next time I arranged to come" Madam. Senso cradle of something it is recommended for those who experience the old fashioned taste. Stamp stamped with "Hanayashiki" from going in and out freely, so I eat and play is also OK.

    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.
