Asakusa Hanayashiki amusement park boasts 19 attractions centered around carnival thrills. Located in the quaint neighborhood of Asakusa, the park is most notable for its classic 1950s atmosphere, featuring an old-school roller coaster, the Space Shot drop tower, and a haunted house. Children will enjoy more relaxed rides such as the Kiddy Taxi and Sky Ship.
Originally a flower garden that bloomed with peonies and chrysanthemums during the late Edo period, Asakusa Hanayashiki began incorporating additional amusements in 1872. The park's local popularity grew, even Emperor Taisho secretly visited in the early 20th century. As Tokyo recovered after WWII, local developers decided to rebuild it as a full-scale amusement park. Several decades later, Asakusa Hanayashiki is now the oldest operating amusement park in Japan.
