Hanayashiki has been in business since 1883 and still draws crowds. There are around 20 rides, more appealing for nostalgia than thrills – 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. At the very least, it makes for a nice alternative to Asakusa's otherwise austere attractions.
