3. Race your friends down the streets of Tokyo
Some say that walking is the best way to explore Japan. But here’s a little secret: it isn’t, not with this go-kart rental around! Explore the Tokyo streets 10 times faster and 100 times cooler with this cute, yet bad-ass piece of machinery that will glide you along the streets of Tokyo at up to 60km/h.
Feel like a celebrity as passersby wave to you on a street, or if you are feeling it, transform into your favourite Japanese cartoon game character with a variety of cosplay costumes available for you to suit up in.
4. Tuck into a bizarre dinner at the famous Robot Restaurant
The epitome of Japan’s quirkiness is this Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku. With strange yet extravagant robots, multi-colored laser lights and flashily dressed dancers, the Robot Restaurant is a themed restaurant on steroids.
If you have a taste for the trippy, this is a wildly entertaining, highly energetic experience we guarantee you will not forget. You and your friends might walk out either slightly dazed or completely blown away. That’s the quintessential side of Japan for you!
5. Get an ultimate relaxation in a Hot Spring Theme Park
When you are finally done with partying and scouring all the insane activities of Tokyo, relax at this hot spring theme park, which provides a truly Japanese bath experience you cannot find elsewhere.
Oedo-Onsen-Monogatari is one of the most popular onsens in Japan. The waters are naturally heated up by the earth and fills 13 different hot spring baths, both indoors and outdoors. Beyond the regular hot springs, you can wrap yourselves up in a yukata after the relaxing soak and wander around the grounds of the theme park to shop and eat.
You can even stay overnight there until 9am the next morning!
6. Get up close and personal with sumo wrestlers
Sumo wrestling is undoubtedly one of the world’s most unique national sports, and whether or not you’re a sports fan yourself, you can’t deny how cool it would be to observe a day in the life of a sumo wrestler! So if you’re interested to learn more about this age-long tradition, book yourself a ticket and experience a sumo wrestling morning practice up close. Who knows? You might get to try your hand at sumo wrestling, too!
7. Experience the thrill of your life at Fuji-Q Highland
No other theme park in the world can offer you the same amount of thrill like Fuji-Q Highland can. With four world-record breaking coasters and two ridiculously scary haunted houses – this theme park is not joking around when it comes to scare-factor! Don’t miss out on Fujiyama – 8th tallest coaster in the world, Do-Dodonpa – 4th fastest coaster in the world, Eejanaika – one of two 4th dimension roller coasters in the world, and Takabisha – the steepest roller coaster in the world!
8. Taste-test your bravery with a delectable puffer fish meal
At Guenpin Fugu, you’ll get a chance to taste the iconic tiger pufferfish – a high quality, yet incredibly poisonous, delicacy that only a few skilled chefs know how to prepare. The slightest error in preparation can be fatal – and if that isn’t thrilling enough for you – we don’t know what is! However, you can trust the Guenpin Fugu to offer the best meals in all of Tokyo, so you don’t have to worry!
9. Ski down the slopes of Mount Fuji
How often do you hear people say they’ve skied down the slopes of Mt. Fuji? Be the first amongst your entire friend group and enjoy this once in a lifetime experience with Klook! Whether you’re a beginner or a well-trained skier, this is one activity you cannot miss during the winter season in Japan!
10. Level up your dinner game with the Tokyo Bay Dinner Cruise
Although we all love the conveyer belt sushi restaurants and one-seater ramen booths, we can’t deny that a Tokyo Bay Dinner Cruise sounds absolutely dreamy! Board The Symphony and enjoy a delectable full course meal (of your choice) with a stunning view of the Tokyo skyline and live music, nonetheless!
