    Mario Kart

    This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip! It was an awesome experience being able to drive on the roads in Tokyo. Would definitely recommend as it is a great way to tour the city! I would do this again!

  • Anna Anna

    A Must-Do in Tokyo!

    The whole experience is exhilarating! Driving across the Rainbow bridge with other road users and everyone was very polite and patient, even during peak hours! A great way to sight-see Tokyo. They forgot to put the camera on my kart though, and I forgot about it as well because of all the excitement. So, please remember to remind them if you have paid and asked for it.

    a very nice experience and I highly reccomend it to anyone visiting Tokyo. It’s very easy to operate and drive the kart except that you need to watch out for traffic! The guide comes wirh you and waits for you if you get stuck at the traffic light, so no worries! Passing by Shibuya crossing was really fun as a go kart driver on the road!

  • Kum Hoong Kum Hoong

    Fantastic experience

    One of the most to do in the list, good tour for guiding us to few attraction and surely safe to drive with their cart

  • Ruby Ruby

    Absolute must do!

    This was the highlight of our trip to Tokyo! Our tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable, the costumes were awesome and it was an experience we will never forget. Absolutely recommend the two hour tour - worth every cent!

  • Harrison Harrison

    Best experience ever

    Best experience my wife and I had in Tokyo. Must try!

  • Amanda Amanda

    Good value and experience!

    A very unique experience with high entertainment value for the price. More than one hour is highly recommended. You'll wish for more time by the end! I went with my family and everyone had a great time driving around and waving to everyone. I was a bit worried my mother would not enjoy it, but she ended up being the one who enjoyed it most!

    There is room for improvement though. It's recommended to arrive early so that you can get in costume quickly and get started asap. The time booked is not time on the road, but just the total experience time. Also, one of our group got left behind during the tour due to a cart break down. One of the guides had to go back for them while the rest of us waited. Unfortunately the tour was not extended at all, so it felt shorter than hoped for.

    Roppongi Maricar

    Amazing. Crazy amounts of fun, great guide, great sights. Only thing I'd recommend to anyone thinking of doing it is to bring glasses or goggles, got so much debris in my eyes
