Hanayashiki Tours

Hanayashiki
Hanayashiki, opened in Tokyo in 1853, is Japan’s oldest amusement park. It was originally a flower park but developed over the decades to include the rides, shops, and cafés that appear there now. Among its many attractions are the oldest steel-track roller coaster in Japan, rideable robot pandas, a haunted house, and a 3D theater.

The Basics
Hanayashiki is located in the historic Asakusa neighborhood, one of the oldest and most atmospheric parts of Tokyo. Therefore it’s fitting that Japan’s oldest amusement park is in this area—and visiting Hanayashiki while in Asakusa adds to the old-time fun you can have here. Hanayashiki is especially popular with kids, and there are rides to suit both older and younger children. Adults also enjoy the retro atmosphere, as well as the shops and restaurants.

Many visitors stop at Hanayashiki while exploring Asakusa and its top sights, such as Senso-ji. A fun way to get around the district is on a rickshaw tour, so you can experience a traditional form of transportation while sightseeing.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Hanayashiki is ideal for families with children visiting Tokyo.
  • The park charges an entrance fee; rides cost extra. You can purchase separate ride tickets or an unlimited pass.
  • Don’t worry about safety—the rides are mostly modern, not as old as the park itself!
  • There are several restaurants and souvenir shops within the park.
  • Entrance is free for visitors with disabilities. There are wheelchair-friendly slopes, paths, and elevators, and an accessible bathroom.

How to Get There
Hanayashiki is close to four different stations named Asakusa: the Ginza and Asakusa subway lines; Tobu Skytree line; and Tsukuba Express line. The entrance to Hanayashiki is closest to the Tsukuba Express line. If looking up directions on maps or apps, it’s important to know which line you are planning to take.

When to Get There
The park is generally open from 10am to 6pm daily, though exact opening hours depend on the weather, as it’s largely an outdoor attraction.

Visit Senso-ji Temple
Senso-ji is the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo, dating from the year 648, and is located right beside Hanayashiki. Dedicated to the goddess of mercy, Kannon, it consists of a wide, grand main hall and a 5-tiered pagoda. If you’re even remotely interested in Japanese culture, history, or religion, this is a must-visit sight. The temple is open daily from 6am to 5pm April to September, and 6:30am to 5pm October to March.
