Overview
Get behind the wheel of a custom-made street go-kart dressed up in your favorite Japanese-inspired character on this tour. After a briefing on how to operate the karts, safely ride around the streets of Osaka with guides on a set course. The tour includes a drive to either the Osaka Castle or Nakanoshima, then through Namba, Nodahanshin Station, and Umeda in center of Osaka.
What to Expect

Once you arrive at the shop, please check in, stating your name and reservation time and present your international driver’s permit and passport.  Once validity of the international drivers permit is confirmed, you will be handed the "terms and conditions" and waiver to sign.  Upon signature, please hand the waiver to a staff and choose a costume.  All customers wear the costumes over their clothing so there is no changing room but there are lockers for your personal belongings.  Once all the participants are ready, you will be briefed on how to operate the karts and lecture you on safety precautions.  After the lecture, you will hop in a kart and turn on the engine.  Once all engines are running, then the Guide will lead the group on to the tour. 

 

Once you leave the shop, the excitement begins!

 

As long as you know how to drive a regular car, handling a kart is not so difficult. Just make sure to keep up with the guide because 2 to 3 hours is definitely not enough time to see all of Osaka!

You will not only see but drive to either the Osaka Castle or Nakanoshima, then drive through Namba, Nodahanshin, Umeda (center of Osaka), enjoying the unique Western Japan's culture!!

The Japanese locals will wave at you, greet you with a big smile, and take pictures of you! A worm welcome you know you can’t receive just by walking down the street!

You will have a short break in the middle of the tour. 

Yes, you will be driving for at least 1.5 hours to 2 hours depending on traffic. 

It may seem long, but most of our customers ask for seconds!  1 is never enough once you experienced THIS!

Amazing racing experience

Explore Osaka in another way and go through the bends and turns of small roads in Osaka! This was an amazing experience and I will recommend to anyone. Make sure you keep the banana peels away. You’ll love this experience!

Yes there is. It will cost him ¥3000 but he follows you on the entire route. This is the only company so far that lets non-driver go along.
