What To Expect

Driving the streets by go kart is one of the most thrilling ways to see Tokyo's Otaku paradise, Akihabara! Choose from a variety of cosplay costumes and take pictures with your go kart before hitting the road. Enjoy driving up to 60km/h on the public roads as you take in the city sights and bright lights of Akihabara. If you have enough time, drive outside of Akihabara and explore the more unique and less traveled roads. Where you go is up to you! Make sure to have your camera ready and take a lot of pictures - this is a unique experience you won't want to forget! Get used to the limelight as many bystanders will be taking your picture too!

    If you are bored from the usual shopping in Tokyo, you should give this a go. Engaging a guide is highly recommended. We chose 10am-12pm slot on a Saturday and our drive is really smooth with good traffic. I also took the advice from the other reviewer and rented for 2 hours. Not too long and not too short for the max speed 60km/h. Although there is no power steering, it is not very difficult to drive. For Singaporeans, you can make your international driving license for $20 at Automobile Association of Singapore. Thank you KLOOK!

    It was awesome and thrilling. People on the sidewalk were friendly and even took pictures of us. The guide was nice. The Go Karts are pretty close to the ground, so you feel swift wind and every bump in the road. An excellent adventure!

    It was awesome! The instructor was very friendly and he was very pro active even tho he was abit old. He always ensured that we are safe and overall, we would definitely do it again
  • WAI*** 31 May 2017
    Highly recommended ,nice experience
  • Mei*** 27 May 2017
    Submitted my drivers license weeks before the appointed date. However, Klook only called me two days before the drive to tell me I was missing relevant documents. Had to do a refund as I was alr in Japan and it was too late to apply for international driving permit.

    It was very convenient for enabling to book the tickets in advance. Thank you Klook!
  • Liling*** 8 May 2017
    The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is quite a small shop so choice of costume was quite limited. If you choose the earliest slot, you can choose from the whole range of costume. Shop had minimal staffing so best to book the guide in advance. The guide will bring you to places of interest and help take photos in his iPhone and then airdrops to you at no additional cost. If you have no experience driving in Japan, it is best to book the guide. Overall a super fun experience with a lot of passers-by taking photos of us.
