This MariCar optional experience can be booked in conjunction with our Japan Explorer and our Epic Japan Adventure Budget group tours.
Dress up as a real-life superhero and discover Tokyo’s hidden gems on wheels as you take on the hustle and bustle of the city’s streets from your very own go-kart.
This add-on takes place on the evening of day 2, following sightseeing of Akihabara. Highlights include Asakusa – home to the city’s oldest temple, and the centre of the downtown district. At Ueno we pass the vibrant markets before driving through Tokyo’s famous shopping, dining and entertainment district – the Ginza. Our final stop is to Tokyo Skytree where we have the chance to take some photos with Japan’s tallest building.
