    It was a great experience! It was a smooth process and we had no issues while cruising down the streets. We were well directed and instructions were clear although we would always have to wait for the other members when the traffic light turned red midway. Also, i highly recommend to bring a face mask because you would be inhaling the exhaust fumes from the cart infront of you for 2 hours straight. Otherwise, best experience in tokyo! Love it!

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!

    Experience was great! Though you cannot count on the guide to take any photos for you. It's purely for guiding. He took 1 photo but didn't send us the end lol. All in all still fantastic and special!
  • Emma Lee Sarah 11 Sep 2018
    Great fun! Two hours as definitely enough but I think I would have preferred doing it at night time with all the lights and night life. Lots of people waved at us and took photos. Make sure you are vigilant as there are other cars trying to drive around you. Definitely recommend and would do again!
  • Chia Muhammad Yusuf Yong Hui 4 Sep 2018
    Drove at night and saw the majestic Tokyo Skytree upclose! Guide was funny and patient.
  • LI ING HIPONIA 30 Aug 2018
    The guide is extremely nice and friendly. He’ll provide some briefing at the beginning and he’ll keep checking on our safety towards the end.
  • Kelcy 28 Aug 2018
    Really good experience! Highly recommended if you’re in akihabara

    I booked a solo two hour drive with a guide from 6-8pm but i arrived early at about 530pm and the guide was kind enough to start abit early to explain the do's and dont's to me. The costumes were kinda wet and looks dirty, probably from the sweat & the dirt from the road. But the weather was too hot to don one. As the guide and i were about to move off, a couple came at 550pm and they were here for their 6pm slot. However they did not pay for a guide. My guide (whom i paid fully for his service) asked the couple to join me. While the guide was patient and took alot of photos for us, i cant help but feeling i was leeched on by the couple who did not pay for the guide. The couple also didnt thank me. The couple is aware that the guide is for me and they know they did not pay for one. Maybe klook can further improve on this? I mean i pay extras for a guide. It is not cheap. In normal circumstances, i dont mind sharing if the strangers are appreciative, but they clearly are not. So in order to prevent this, can klook protect those who indeed book a guide? Like strictly imposed those without guide to move off by themselves or have certain timeslot for those with guide only. In a way, i feel cheated and annoyed by this incident.

    It was an amazing experience. Everyone should do it once - for sure! Would definitely want to come back and do it again! Things to improve: 1. Route to see more of Tokyo at night. We booked the 7pm drive. It was just too hot to do this during the day in summertime Tokyo.
  • allysson 27 Aug 2018
    Best experience in Tokyo! The 2 guides couldn't speak English but they were able to explain to us how the go-karts worked so it was okay. We passed by the Sky Tree, Asahi Buildings, and many more. We were just a bit surprised cause we were asked to join another group during our time slot even though we paid for our own tour guide but it wasn't a big deal. Overall, we had lots of fun!
  • Geraldine Hui Rong 26 Aug 2018
    One the best driving experience ever! Thanks Klook for offering such an awesome package as compared to the other operators! Although the meeting location seems abit off city, but it was still walking distance from Akiharaba. The costumes provided were not very clean nor comprehensive. Better to have a guide along. Nonetheless, the experience beats everything above.
