Japan is known for a lot of things to do or places to see, but there is one very unique outdoor experience. Most of us have driven Go-Karts at some point in our life, but there is nowhere else in the world that can offer driving Street Go-Karts through the middle of Tokyo city.
For those big kids at heart, or ones after a little excitement, action, or a lot of fun. Not to mention having the best view in the house for touring the busy capital of Tokyo. The experience was first inspired by the game Mario Bros and therefore offered costumes of the characters. These days, costumes are still an option, but some opt instead for superheroes and other characters.
Start out 20 minutes from the city, drive right beside the local cars, buses and trucks. Once you hit the city, you’re treated like any other driver stopping at the lights, turning, and changing lanes when needed. What makes this experience special is your driving right through Shibuya Crossing. One of the busiest street crossings in the world, accommodating a scramble of 2500 people each time.
To participate in this experience you will need an International Drivers License, purchased in your own country before travel. Apart from that, you just strap yourself in and follow the guides around the busy city streets.
It’s a whole lot of fun and you’ll leave with a big smile.
