Plenty of nostalgic attractions
With scenery where you can enjoy the collaboration of Senso-ji Temple, Nakamise Dori, and Tokyo Sky Tree with the historic streets, Asakusa still retains the appearance of Japan from the good ol’ days. It is known as a must-see tourist spot and Asakusa Hanayashiki is also one of those atmospheric tourist areas where you can feel the nostalgia. First opened in 1853, it is Japan’s oldest amusement park, and the roller coaster that was popular back in the day still survives today. The 60-year-old roller coaster only has a speed of 42 km/h, but it is still popular as one of the most famous attractions at Hanayashiki. Also, there is plenty to satisfy the ride fans with rides such as the Space Shot with its 60m-high rise and the Disk O with its exhilarating centrifugal force. There are also attractions without height restrictions such as a merry-go-round and a mini-Ferris Wheel so that families with small children can also enjoy the park without worry.
Also check out information on the many events
At Hanayashiki, there are events and interactive venues including Hanayashiki Pro Wrestling and stage shows. Information on the occasional pro wrestling and live events can be found on the homepage. Also, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy Hanayashiki outside of the amusement park attractions, such as the Hanayashiki BBQ Garden for which you don’t have to bring any utensils.
