      You MUST treat yourself to this out of this world experience
      Amazing! DO THIS!! We both did a nighttime tour and despite my nerves, it was so amazing. Our guide GY was so cool. Explained things so clearly and looked after us. He made this tour! Dressing up in a costume was great and trust me you won’t get hot/overheat. They give you gloves, glasses and beanies that are all freshly cleaned or washed. Do yourself a favour - it was truly sooooo good! Ask for GY!

      Open road by the Bay
      This experience cannot be beaten! Driving a go cart on the streets of Tokyo legally and actively taking in the sights and energy from the pedestrians, amazing. The instructors, the office staff, everyone, were relaxed, fun and passionate about what they do. I would recommend to anyone who visits Tokyo, we did both Tokyo Bay and Shibuya, give them both a go, they are both great, but they are also very different.

      Streetkart is amazing
      We had a blast with our guide GY and the course that included the Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Tower, and Odaiba! I was initially torn between this course and the one in Shibuya, but I am so happy I went with this one as it is longer and going fast along/around the rainbow bridge was so much fun! We still had plenty of photo opportunities at stop lights. GY made sure to rotate throughout the duration of the course so that each pair was able to be at the front, and he also took many photos of everyone. The costumes were also a nice touch! Our guide was fun and made sure we were safe at all times. I highly recommended Streetkart Tokyo Bay.

      Absolutely fantastic experience today with Street Kart. Great fun riding around the sites of Tokyo with my friends on a kart. Benny the guide was superb ensuring we stayed together as a group when we came to traffic lights. Would highly recommend this as an experience in Tokyo.

      We went in the summer during a down pour rain and you would think that the rain would ruin the experience by it was still absolutely amazing. I so appreciate our guide and this incredible experience!

      AMAZING EXPERIENCE
      Personally, I had my reservations about this because I didn't know how easy or hard it would be. Turns out it was pretty easy and if you're an adrenaline junkie that likes speed, this is most definitley for you and at the same time you get to see many cool shopping centers and popular tourist destinations. There were some minor malfunctions with the karts like with my friends kart that had loose screws but other than that, it was well worth the experience.

      Such an amazing experience!
      Got to see sites that we didn't have time for during our trip which was convenient. The driving instructor made us feel safe and waited for those who didn't make the green light. If you're nervous they let you drive the closest to them with the best drivers toward to the back of the group. It was such a good experience doing it at night and feeling the wind in my hair!! I own a convertible back home so it was nice to have that same feeling again overseas. Highly recommend!

      Best way to tour Tokyo!!!
      Such an amazing experience. I’ve done it once before, so we decided to go at night for a different experience. Despite the rain it was AMAZING!! Our tour guide was so fun and kept us safe and entertained. If you’ve never done this, you should. I’ve been to japan so many times, over 30 years, but until you drive on the streets you never see what’s going on, we’re so used to traveling by train underground that you never see what’s on top. Totally recommend

    My sister and I had the best two hours during this tour. Everyone was really friendly when we walked in to sign in and they were all really helpful. We had Dylan as our guide and he took really good care of us making sure that we were all ok and happy throughout the tour. He took some great group photos of us and at the end gave us a copy of one of the pictures. The staff made sure that we all had sun cream and offered us some if we didn’t have any (we were out in 30+ degree heat). We enjoyed driving around Tokyo and seeing things you may not have seen on foot. Definitely would recommend this tour via the Tokyo Bay shop to anyone who is thinking about doing it! Thanks all 🤙🏼.

    Was a great ride through the city, making two passes on the lower deck of the rainbow bridge (the spiral entrance/exit ramps were better than being on the bridge itself in my opinion!) and passing beside the Tokyo Tower in the evening for some great sights. Our guide Andy did a fantastic job of keeping track of the traffic as well as all of the guests, big props to him.

    If you are considering Street Kart Tokyo, I would recommend trying to do it with a group of known friends as opposed to a random group, as varied driving skills in a group of strangers can cause a bit of stress if you are behind someone who is not keeping up with the group or paying attention to the hand signals. However, if you can't get a good group together, it is still worthwhile just for the experience.

    Another tip that I heard before I went and it definitely held true is that you need to be prepared to be inhale a lot of exhaust during your trip, especially if you're on the right side when making two lines at stops, as the exhausts face the right. Some of the karts seem to run a bit cleaner than others (or maybe some people just remembered to fully release the gas pedal), so your experience may vary.

    Hesitant to book at first as I was worried about upsetting locals - foreigners driving go karts on their roads and all. But many of the locals waved and smiled as we rode along the Tokyo Bay course which relieved my anxiety. Our guide, Benny, was absolutely great - he ensured the safety of everybody in the group and made us all laugh and smile from start to finish. If you’re having any doubts about trying out Street Kart, you can rest those worries. Everyone at the company seemed great and the experience is one of the highlights of the three trips I’ve now taken to Japan. If you end up with Benny you’ll be in for a blast of a time. Enjoy!

    P.S. If you tour during the winter, dress warm. Extra socks (or wool socks), gloves, something to cover your head / ears if you’re not wearing a costume or mask, and base layers for your shirts and pants if you don’t want your body feeling chilly. It was cold - and the go karts definitely won’t shield you from the wind. Take care!

    You won't get a better experience in Tokyo and possibly beyond!
    Team in the shop are incredibly friendly and give you all the information you need. Guy is a larger than life character and really generous with his conversation and spirit.
    The pre-experience safety information was simple but informative.
    Lebby was our driver. The tour was the best fun but somehow she made it better.
    The karts are real karts, so no power steering, you are low to the ground and there is no suspension but this all adds to the experience.
    It lasted a good 2 hours with lots of sights to see, lots of waving at the locals and lots of photos.
    Normally you would be charged a fortune for a souvenir photos but all of the photos taken are air dropped or can be accessed via a google and you even get a free printed photo.
    The team couldn't do enough, there was no hard sell (which is refreshing) and if you only do one thing in Tokyo then it is this!

    Initially was nervous, after 2 minutes I was sure this was the greatest thing I was going to do in Japan. My wife and I did the three hour tour during the day and it was totally worth it. Our guide, Travis, was engaging, fun, and aware of the surroundings (a real pro). This was a real highlight of the entire trip and the great thing was Travis took a ton of pictures for everyone!

    This is one of the most fun things I've ever done! Our guide Ricardo was awesome. I was slightly nervous before we set out, but immediately I was put at ease as Ricardo navigated the streets and the traffic, always making sure we were all safe. It was three hours of sheer fun - especially speeding down Rainbow Bridge! Ricardo also took lots of photos along the way which he shared with us at the end of the tour. This was such a great way to see the city. I highly recommend!

    EPIC!!! Clarence (our guide) was amazing! The entire team does a fantastic job guiding you through the pre-work to register. A must do experience! The karts ride very smooth and the speed is perfect so that you don’t feel vulnerable out there. I went solo and had a blast! They take you out in groups of 6. Be on time or they leave without you!!! I can’t stress it enough! Follow the instructions! They give you all the info needed to coordinate this experience. I also rented a go pro! They have a full package you can rent. Easy peasy. They have costumes or you can coordinate and come dressed as you wish. Your guide will take pictures while you are on the tour and air drop them to you once you return to the shop. Don’t miss this amazing experience!

    This experience is definitely something you should add to your trip! Such a great way to see parts of Tokyo, especially while driving on the roads themselves. It took a little bit to get used to driving the go-kart, but once you get the hang of it you get to enjoy all the sights and the thrill of being on the Tokyo streets. Driving on Rainbow bridge was definitely a huge highlight of the tour. You feel like you’re going so fast, it’s as if you’re actually racing! Our guide Nao made the experience more fun by taking lots of pictures of our family at all the stop lights. Definitely book a tour around sunset to see the transition of the city between day and night. Just make sure to bring a sweater to wear under your costume because it can get pretty chilly. I highly recommend booking this experience if you want to add some extra excitement to your Tokyo trip!

    Great experience, fun and friendly staff, amazing views. I'll write some detail about the experience because we didn't know anything about it going in regarding driving locations etc.

    Firstly we arrived 40 minutes early at Street Kart and met by the friendly mechanics outside. We were guided upstairs and signed in at reception. We were given an ipad to fill out a disclaimer form. Once done you put your items in a locker and choose from a selection of outfits (sorry can't remember them! There's no outfits from a certain game you may associate with Karting just so you know.) Crocs (footwear) and goggles are also provided if you wish to use them but these aren't essential.

    Your guide will meet you and take you to your karts for an introduction and go over some rules. You will then sit in your kart and learn the essentials. There is a pouch for you to store your phone in so take your phone with you and don't leave in the locker. You can take pics when stopped at red lights.

    You will then start the tour. You drive around the bay area travelling towards the rainbow bridge that takes you over to Tokyo Tower. You will drive around half the Tower and then start your route back towards the bridge and over to the bay area where you stay for a while. If this sounds like a short trip, it is not. The total time is around 1.5-2hrs for the 2hr tour, depending on how fast you are comfortable driving and providing there are no issues.

    The guide our group had was Benny, who was funny, enthusiastic and took loads of great pics of our group. He was able to let us have a great time but you could tell he was always making sure everyone was comfortable and safe which was great.

    Overall a perfect expeience. Our group had a great time and will be recommending this to everyone who comes to Tokyo.

    Cheers guys!
