About Asakusa Hanayashiki
Opened in 1853, it is the oldest amusement park in Japan.
The park was reopened in 1947 after being affected by World War II.
It has the oldest Japanese-made roller coaster in Japan
When the park opened in 1853, it was a botanical garden where many tea men and poets gathered during the Edo period.
The women of the Ooku (Shogun’s family) used to rest here, and swings were the only amusement facilities at that time.

Each attraction requires 2 to 5 ride tickets, and the attractions that can be ridden by 3-year-olds usually require 2 ride tickets.
My daughter is a scaredy-cat, so we didn’t buy a free pass, but rather a coupon ticket.
As a result, we only needed to buy 11 tickets plus 1 more.
Unless you have a child who loves attractions! I don’t think you need a free pass unless you are a child who loves attractions.
Lunch is recommended outside the park.
There are stores and places to eat inside Hanayashiki, but they are quite delicate .
And most importantly, there is a lot of fighting for a table. Since it was only my dad, we gave up on getting a table early and went outside to eat lunch.
When you go outside, be sure to say, “We’re re-entering! and be sure to tell them!
You will get a stamp on the back of your hand and you can re-enter.
