The "oldest theme park in Japan" is a quaint view into the past of theme parks, and Japanese culture

Hanayashiki is a hokey little amusement park in the wonderful old Asakusa neighborhood. It's the Japan equivalent of Children's Fairyland in Oakland, California. It's a little cheesy, a little shabby, but that's part of the charm. The Panda Cars are the best bit. They're rideable, free-roaming, giant stuffed pandas. I think they were ¥100 (about $1.00) and scuttled along at... More

Very charming old school neighborhood amusement park 5-10 minutes walk west of Sensoji. If you are in Asakusa with kids (aged 5-14 is probably about the sweet spot), this is a perfect way to kill an hour or two. Cost was around 10000 yen all in for two adults and three kids (with one adult and two kids taking a... More

I had seen Hanayashiki on a map of Asakusa but was told to avoid it as it was just a silly little theme park. Well... it IS a silly little theme park, but it's incredibly enjoyable. It's a great view into vintage theme parks of old (especially as a counterpoint to Tokyo Disney).

I visited Hanayashiki Amusement Park with some friends in September 2015. It really feels historical and steeped in history! The park is home to one of the oldest operating rollercoasters in Japan, a great ride aptly called 'Roller Coaster'. We also had great fun riding the mechanical pandas! I really liked it here, great to visit even if you don't... More

Home to one of the oldest steel rollercoasters in existence, Hanayashiki is an interesting place to visit. There is quite a large area to explore, with many attractions to be enjoyed. I really enjoyed the robot pandas that can be ridden.

Our 2 families had a terrific time here. Multiple turns on the roller coaster, space shot, disco, surprise house and ghost train. A couple of rides closed for maintenance but no big deal. Very good value.

We visited this wonderful, old theme park after visiting the Sensoji Temple. It is only a short five minute walk between the two. It is the most gorgeous old park with loads of atmosphere. The rides are fun and no long queues. The whole place is brimming with happy Japanese families enjoying the day. A real gem.

My teen son and I got to amusement park early in the day and felt like we had the place to ourselves. Yes, it isn't slick and high tech, it's kind of corny - isn't that the point? My son convinced me to ride the Space Shot- I am a wimp and it really was fun! Don't miss the roller... More

It is a good activity for kid to experience japanese culture. We can learn four ninjya skills during the one hour course. I like the concealing skill the most and my son loves the shuriken. The course is full of joy and certificate will be issued after the course.

This is a great place for kids with lots of interesting games. We visited during Christmas holiday and still the waiting queue for games are acceptable (in general within 15 mins). Though some of the equipments are rusty, but my kids love this place

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
