      Amazing!
      Sooo much fun!! Literally the best part of our trip! Yuta was our guide and he had so much energy and made the experience even more memorable! Same with the man who helped us book in! Shinagawa track was great! It wasn't a heavy flow of traffic and you got to see the grand Tokyo Tower! Perfect course in my opinion. It was also the right amount of time! 1 hour was perfect!

      Must-do activity in Tokyo!!!
      Made a last-minute booking for 6 people and they were able to accommodate us for a 1-hour tour. Super fun activity with the family! Our tour guide Yuta kept us safe the whole way and took great pictures! Onesies, gloves, and sunglasses are offered at no additional cost, and they're cleaned after each tour.

      Just. Freaking. Awesome.
      That's it! Just. Freaking. Awesome. Want to try something different? Here's your chance! Forget about riding in style through Ginza, do it in a Kart, dressed up like Mario. That oughta turn heads!! A couple of recommendations: -Follow the lead of the guide, at all times. They know better and traffic can be daunting. -Wear a mask. You will be low to the ground and fumes from other vehicles may cause some breathing problems. Other than that, dress up, jump in the kart and have fun!

      Amazing experience- Tokyo by night
      Absolutely amazing experience. Our tour guide Adam was fantastic and a always so calm and reassuring. He a always kept an eye out on us! We went through some amazing landmarks and seeing it lit up in the night was phenomenal. You also need to make sure to have your international driving permits!! Would recommend this to anyone!

      So much fun!
      We did the 2 hour Asakusa option and had such a fun time! You don't learn much but it's such a different thing to do and was great to see a couple of places we hadn't got to yet. I managed to get a Pikachu costume too! Make sure you wrap up because as the sun goes down it gets pretty cold.

      Great Tour
      I can't say enough about this tour. I spent 2 weeks traveling Asia, and this was the highlight for me. I felt safe the whole time, but you have to be comfortable with driving. 12 inches off the ground. With Tokyo traffic in the next lane. Fortunately, Tokyo drivers respect lanes and traffic laws, so it was great!

      Get Your International Driver's License and Get Ready to Ride
      If you are looking for a unique, thrillin, adrenaline-rush Tokyo adventure then you simply MUST get your international driving permit and visit StreetKart Shinagawa. We had the amazing Adam from Australia (AAA) as our "private guide" (only 2 of us) and zipped through the streets from Shinagawa to Harajuku to Roppongi and Minato City, even over the rainbow bridge (YIKES!!!) to Odaiba!!! Adam had us roaring with laughter along the way with his stories, knowledge of the city and all things Japan! Don't forget your hat, gloves and mittens because these go-karts take you through the city in costume at speeds of up to 65 km! This is not for little kids or the feint of heart but was loads of fun and would definitely do it again!

      Must do in Tokyo
      Great fun, Ken was an engaging and knowledgeable guide, who was always keeping us safe through the traffic and rain, the included costumes and rainwear made the afternoon fun despite the conditions. Just remember to have an international driving permit.

      Ride of your life !
      Without a doubt the most thrilling experience during our time in japan. My 20 something kids talked me into this kart driving tour and it will be a family event to remember . Personally I was terrified the entire time. The speed of the Karts was more than 65km - no helmet, no seatbelts but it will be the ride of your life. Hilarious adventure and definitely recommend .

      Highlight of our trip to Tokyo
      This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip to Tokyo! So much fun, and a really good amount of time driving in the karts. Our instructor (Ricardo I think!!) Was awesome - he showed us all the sights, took loads of photos of us, made sure we rotated around in order, and at the end sent us all the photos and gave us some printed ones already!! Incredible - definitely do this whilst you're in Tokyo!!

      Absolutely Amazing
      Wow, the highlight of our trip! One of my top 10 life experiences. We had Adam as our instructor and he was great, so much fun! Absolutely can not miss this - the best way to see Tokyo. Feel like a bit of a celebrity driving through the real touristy places and waving at everyone lol Didn’t want to get off the go-kart - will definitely be doing this again! Definitely make sure you get your international driving permit (it’s a super easy process) or they won’t let you go. Also I’d recommend wearing waterproof mascara cause the wind will make your eyes water. Gloves are also a must for the night tour (although they can provide you with some, they’re a little worn though). Adam took lots of photos while on the tour which he Airdropped through to us - great photos! We also got some sweet GoPro footage (check out @onewhitewolf on Insta to see the edited video) you can hire a GoPro and a harness from them for not much. We put heat packs on under our onesies and we weren’t cold at all. If any of the group got left behind, Adam waited for them and we went back on our way. The order we drove in was swapped throughout the trip so we all had a turn at being at the front/back. Overall I can’t fault this. My face hurt from smiling. The staff were ultra friendly. Made some cool new friends who did the tour with us. Just way too much fun.

    For everyone who sees my review. Guys It is a must you will enjoy to the fullest. Our tour was pretty good with low traffic and we drove by tokyo tower which was such an impressive view. It was a very good decision to have this experience in Shinagawa.
    I would also thank our guide Yuta so much for being so kind and supportive.

    This was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had in a large city. We had a night reservation on the Tokyo Tower 🗼 route, at the Shinagawa shop. This is an amazing way to see the city, and the traffic isn't as crazy as the day time. The costumes you get to dress up in made it the perfect temp, and were a nice touch. Yuta was a great guide, and was very patient with everyone. I would 10/10 do this again, and they suggested I try another branch to see another part of the city. DO NOT MISS THIS ON YOUR TRIP IN TOKYO!!
