There are a lot of amusement parks in Japan and you might visit some of them like Disney land. If you wanna have different experience in amusement park, there is very suitable place. The amusement park is definitely the oldest in Japan!
Hanayashiki (in Asakusa) was opened as a flower park in 1853, when Commodore of the US Navy Matthew Calbraith Perry visited Japan in the late Edo era. This Edo era amusement center included tea shops, entertainment (misemono) and the exhibit of some animals. After World War II it became an amusement park, operated by the Togo company which celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1999 as manager of the 146 year old park. However the park is now owned and managed by the Bandai Namco Group.
Nowadays, Hanayashiki is operating as an amusement park with 20 kinds of attractions and souvenir shops with park original goods, including Japan’s oldest steel-track rollercoaster and a haunted house. Most have been upgraded over the years, but their scope is limited due to the park’s small size. The nostalgia is palpable, and there’s a sense of boisterous fun in there somewhere amidst the rust. The oldest attraction in Hanayashiki, “Surprizing House” which calls “Bikkuri house” in Japanese was opened in 1949. If you wanna enjoy old style typical Japanese attraction, you should try this! The park is close to Asakusa station, walking about 5min. Interesting? Please check it out!
