“small but have them all.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This amusement park is small but please do not forget that size doesn't matter. The good things about being small is it's suits your kids. Children can enjoy most of the rides. Each one doesn't take long time on the ride (so parents don't have to wait for a long time) effecting the short queue and quick turnover. My kids (7 and 11) love all the ride. Location is not so difficult to find, you may go straight in to Asakusa Shrine's premise and look on your left hand side, there will be a gate leading to Hanayashiki. All rides are not new but seems to be very well taken care of.

“Another small attraction”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Good for small kids, don't bother if your an adult. The ride selection is average at best. I would not take my kids here.

“Pleasant little park”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Despite being quite a small park, there are many good rides, especially for kids younger than 12 years old. Good to take the kids when they got tired of visiting temples and shopping.

“Take the kiddies!”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

A retro-mini-amusement park to take the kiddies when they tire of shopping. I used to go when I was a kid, and it hasn't changed much.

“Cute little amusement park with a lot of charm”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

Hanayashiki in the Asakusa area of Tokyo has the distinction of being the oldest amusement park in Japan (and also has Japan's oldest roller coaster). Area-wise, it is extremely small, but there is a ton of stuff packed into that small area. The roller coaster circles the perimeter and there are lots of small family-oriented rides in the center. You can either pay a small admission fee and then buy tickets for the rides, or you can buy a free pass which gives you unlimited rides. We just bought tickets and did a couple of rides that we wanted since it was two adults, but with a family, I could see spending a few hours here riding everything for a very relaxed and fun afternoon that I think kids would really love without the crowds and miles of walking in bigger parks. I highly recommend the "Surprising House." It was definitely different from any attraction I have ever been on. Odd...but lots of fun. There is also a stage where, while we were there, they were having some type of Halloween show, but since it was all in Japanese, I'm not really sure what it was about. All-in-all, this is a very charming little park that is well worth a visit while visiting the Asakusa area. You can just pop in, buy tickets and ride whatever you see you like, and not take up too much time out of your day unless you want to spend more.
