Official Street Go-Kart Tour - Shinagawa Shop

    What to Expect
    Once you arrive at the shop, please check in, stating your name and reservation time and present your international driver’s permit and passport.  Once the validity of the international driver's permit is confirmed, you will be handed the "terms and conditions" and waiver to sign. Upon signature, please hand the waiver to a staff and choose a costume.  All customers wear the costumes over their clothing so there is no changing room but there are lockers for your personal belongings. Once all the participants are ready, you will be briefed on how to operate the karts and lecture you on safety precautions. After the lecture, you will hop in a kart and turn on the engine. Once all engines are running, the Guide will lead the group on to the tour. Once you leave the shop, the excitement begins. As long as you know how to drive a regular car, handling a kart is not so difficult. Just make sure to keep up with the guide because 2 to 3 hours is definitely not enough time to see all of Tokyo. You will not only see but drive on the Rainbow Bridge, drive by the Tokyo Tower, drive through the Roppongi Area, and stop right in front of the famous Shibuya Crossing. The Japanese locals will wave at you, greet you with a big smile, and take pictures of you. A warm welcome you know you can’t receive just by walking down the street. You will have a short break in the middle of the tour.

    This is a must-must do when you are in Tokyo. I had some hesitation about the safety of doing go-kart in the busy streets of Tokyo. But boy, am I glad we did and this activity became a key highlight of our trip to Japan....More
