Explore the streets of Tokyo in an unconventional way: by zipping around in a go-kart! Go through Akihabara district, famous for its electronics stores and for being Otaku central, be it for manga, anime or games. Drive past the streets as if you’re in a game yourself and go where your whim takes you. No need to worry about getting lost - your guide will always be around to help you navigate the streets!

Stop by one of the cosplay stores and pick up a costume at your own expense. Take photographs all dressed up and hit the streets again with your go-kart. Enjoy the limelight as there will be plenty of bystanders taking pictures of you!
