A five-minute walk from Asakusa Station, Hanayashiki has been around since 1853, when it originally began as a flower park. Its management gradually added more attractions, including a mini-zoo (which no longer exists today), until it became an amusement park. Nowadays, being a tiny, densely packed amusement park surrounded by tall buildings that are extremely close to the rides, and with rides that have seen better days, its age is evident, but it’s worth a visit for a glimpse of an old-school Japanese amusement park.
