Asakusa Hanayashiki, which opened in 1853, is the oldest amusement park in Japan. The roller coaster in Hanayashiki dates from 1953 and is the oldest extant scream machine in the country. With attractions that even newborns can ride, and haunted houses, this is an amusement park that you can enjoy with your kids. Put yourself in a festive mood for the ennichi, or traditional Japanese fair stalls, in the game zone. Another popular attraction is the Ninja Training Dojo, where anyone 5-years old and older can learn the requisite skills to become a ninja (reservations required). Hanayashiki even has an area with views of the main hall and five-storied pagoda of Senso-ji Temple and Tokyo Skytree and other sights, making it a great place to enjoy Asakusa sightseeing. A three-minute walk from Asakusa Station on the Tsukuba Express Line, and a five-minute walk from Asakusa Station on the Toky Metro Ginza LIne, Toei Asakusa Line and Tobu Skytree Line.
