The guide was very fun and outgoing! He took amazing photos and videos of our experience. The instructions were clear in plain english and the costumes that were provided were cute! The drive was amazing and got to see many areas of Osaka including Osaka Castle 😌

Awesome time! Huro was great and we felt safe the whole time. I was skeptical doing this as it seemed like something the young kids do but it was hella fun for us seniors! Great way to see Osaka on a short day trip from Kyoto.

The team at Akiba Kart were very professional and knowledge of the streets of Osaka. A great way to get a tour of the city as well as an unforgettable memory with friends. Highly highly recommended!

What a positive and fun experience! Weaving through traffic in a foreign country low to the ground, so cool. Haru was a great guide pointing out all the landmarks and taking pics of the group. Definitely try the two hour tour when you're in Osaka!

Come by half an hour early to choose costume, it was easy to locate as well, some kids felt i was a real life minion and waved to me happily and public will take pictures, it is a great experience to try if you come by japan, I recommend if you have international driving license as required, although another person had caused trouble and we waited on the roadside while tourguide was looking for him, we lost a few minutes of the tour, so if we do try again we feel like we might try for a longer duration one, but it was all good since we took lots of pictures and selfies while waiting. Enjoyed the view while driving around as well, thank you all staff all friendly and accommodating 🥰

Zip through the busy streets of Osaka to all the popular sightseeing areas like Dotonbori, Osaka Castle, Namba and more. Choose a 1 or 2-hour course that suits your needs, style up as your favorite character and get ready to be the center of attention.

The mini car with its automatic transmission, signal lights, and adjustable seats allows you to drive as fast as 60km per hour. Zoom past the normal-sized cars and flash a smile to the tourists as they snap away. Be ready with your Japanese driver's license, Japanese SOFA license, or an international driving permit and you'll be ready to hit the road.
