    Coming from Canada where cars drive on the right hand side of the road, I was a little hesitant as Japan drives on the left. However the go kart was very easy to use and the guide always made sure that you were there right behind him. The tour itself was awesome and you get to see a lot of Osaka in the 2 hours on the road. Tons of fun, highly recommend!

    It was so fun! driving around on the main road with other road users is quite an experience. However, it's not much of a tour. You have time to look around much as you'll be focused in driving your go cart most of the time. It's the go carting experience that you will be having for this tour and not the actual tour itself.

    Fun experience! Liked the adrenaline of riding on the road, easy to drive! Will do to again in TOKYO!
  • She Ping 13 Oct 2018
    It was AMAZING, a must try when you’re in Osaka!!! Pro tip: if it’s not in the summer it’s going to be cooler than just walking outside so don’t be afraid of the plushy costumes.
  • Melissa 9 Oct 2018
    A must try! It was fun and the guide was very nice and attentive.
  • Man Ting 3 Oct 2018
    It was really fun! Must try experience in japan before it gets banned. Instructors were super friendly and took care of us really well.
  • Zi Ju 2 Oct 2018
    This is definitely one of the highlights of my trip. Go karting along the streets of Osaka was exciting and great experience. The guide was so very friendly.
  • Po Yi 2 Oct 2018
    If you are considering whether to book this then stop and go for it straight away. It really was an enjoyable and unique experience like no other - the guides were great and the karts are good quality. A few tips: - limited choice of costumes so you may wish to bring your own (there are no Mario characters) - the karts are petrol and a lot of fumes come out so you may wish to bring a face mask!
  • Wen Kai Edwin 18 Sep 2018
    I would rate it 6 stars out of 5 stars It was absolutely amazing and great experience driving around the city. It was very safe, professional and small group by our guide, Isao. He is always on the lookout to ensure our safety and even took photos for us during the drive. We will definitely be coming back again during our next visit to Osaka. Thumbs up! Thank you.

    It was fun but hot in August. I would suggest you to bring your own costume.
