    Awesome novelty tour

    So much fun. For those who love MarioKart and go carts this is a must. Great tour guides making sure we are ok and having a great time. Many photo ops, and the crowds love you. Nowhere else you can drive in mario outfits on go carts in the busy streets of tokyo 😊

    Tokyo Driving and Drifting

    We had a fantastic time with Maricar and its the best way to see some of the sights of Tokyo. Our guide Taka was great and he was even impressed by our driving abilities. Cant wait to do this again sometime soon.

    Sounded fantastic idea to run around the city streets in a go cart
    People at the side of the road waving and taking phots
    The guide spoke very good English

    SO MUCH FUN

    Despite the humidity and slight rain towards the end of our maricar trip around Tokyo, my friends and I enjoyed every second!
    Reservation was easy, we just needed to provide drivers license and international permit license - i forgot my Australian drivers license but I was still allowed ( you just pay a fine of approximately $30 if you are pulled over by police) and took the risk.
    As there were only 6 of us in total, we managed to have the costume variety all to ourselves - first come first served!
    Our guide also took photos of us at a pit stops infront of odaiba bridge - i think it was and at Red lights.
    Would recommend to anyone, at any age of you have time!

    Must do while in Tokyo

    One if the funnest things to do while in Tokyo. I fully recommend trying this at least once and doing the 2 hour circuit. It's amazing to drive around Tokyo in go carts. To enjoy both the sun and beautiful lights I'd recommend doing the 6pm one in summer.

    Amazing

    It was great fun! The drive was amazing and stopping to take pictures was great. I would love to do it again.

    Never forget this experience

    Best thing to do at Japan! My family didn't want to go originally but thanks to me pushing them, they enjoyed it just as much as I did. Very unique and special experience
