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

We went here with our 4 year old expecting to waste a few minutes after going to the Sensoji Temple. We had so much fun. We bought some tickets for the rides and got our 4 and under sticker and we were off. Our daughter had so much fun on the car ride, the swans, the boat, the merry go... More

Old school rides. Little crowds. Entrance fee charged per pax (reasonably cheap - can't remember the fee now) and rides are charged per ride. You purchase tickets either at entrance, or at vending machines located throughout the park. It's no disneyland, but a really quaint old theme park.

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... More

Old attractions, are nice, and children were happy, but price was from my point of view to high and you have to take a lot of token inside to ride for 2 adults and 2 children. 1000 fees entry per adult and 500 for children below 12. Then you must pay 200 to 400 to do a ride per person... More

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

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.
