Just got back from Japan and this is was a major highlight. So surreal getting to drive past so many famous landmarks in Tokyo while pedestrians excitedly wave at you. Must do activity in Tokyo.

We did a 1h tour and it's definitely a must-do when in Tokyo. The staff is so nice and we had a really fun time. Where else can you drive through normal streets dressed as Luigi? 😂
