SPECTACULAR!! We had high expectations for something so flashy, but they have far exceeded them. Driving through the center of Tokyo (Shinjuku, and the famous Shibuya crossing, among others) at night, dressed as Pikachu, is priceless. In addition, the guides Satar and Richard were very nice and they took some very cool photos of us that they later sent us by WhatsApp and that we will keep with great affection. 100% recommended experience if you visit Tokyo.

Very fun! A must do while in Japan. Our guide helped make our experience fun while also making our safety a priority. We did this tour after dark and the night lights and pictures were amazing. Don't forget to bring an international drivers license or you will not be able to drive your own go kart.
