Did you know you can Go-Cart thru the streets of Tokyo, Japan legally?

What is the best way to see the city of Tokyo you ask? MariCAR Street Kart is 100% the answer! Although, the public transport in Tokyo is amazing, zipping around in the city streets dressed as your favorite video game characters while seeing the sights in a custom-made go-cart is so much better!Screen Shot 2018-11-03 at 8.49.31 AM.png
