Asakusa Hanayashiki is the oldest amusement park in Japan. The roller coaster is the oldest existing roller coaster in Japan.

The park was first opened in 1853 by Rokusaburo Morita, a plant dealer, who created a flower garden mainly featuring peony and chrysanthemum work.

In the Meiji era, amusement facilities were built and the park gradually became a place of entertainment, including the breeding of wild animals and exhibitions of freak shows.

Later, the park was closed due to the earthquake and the ravages of war, but was rebuilt as an amusement park through various processes.

The attractions were also rebuilt and improved, and even today it is a popular sightseeing and date spot as a symbol of Asakusa.
