Hanayashiki is an amusement park in Asakusa, Taitō, Tokyo that has operated since 1853. It is operated by Hanayashiki Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Bandai Namco Holdings. It is claimed to be the oldest amusement park in Japan and Asia.

It’s Japan’s oldest theme park, first opening its doors in 1853 as a flower park, transforming over the years into the little fun retro amusement that it is today. But don’t worry, the rides aren’t as old as the park, and they’re all very well maintained.

There are two ways to enjoy the park – pay a 1,000 Yen admission fee and purchase ride tickets as you go, or get a free ride pass for 2,300 Yen. If you plan to go on 3-4 of the rides, the free pass is the way to go, plus you won’t have to fiddle around with the tickets.

Notable attractions include the Bee Tower, a cute candy-house merry-go-round 45 meters above the ground with fantastic views of Tokyo Sky Tree and the surrounding area, and Space Shot, the ride with the biggest adrenaline rush in the park, shooting you up 80 meters into the air before dropping you right down.


Hanayashiki is a perfect for the family with kids on a budget, but young couples will find lots to enjoy here too.
