I'm impressed despite all the lawsuits from Nintendo, actual shutdowns, road accidents, and hatred from the Tokyo locals, this company still finds a way.

They no longer use Nintendo costumes, from what i´d seen

There were several vendors doing this when I was there. Did they have a bunch of hostile takeovers and highlander there can only be one combat?

Trash Taste talked about this recently and said everyone in Tokyo hates the street go-karts, tourists always crash them.

Tokyoiter here. Major nuisance to all forms of traffic - especially unsafe to bike lanes.. Mostly a foreigner tourist trap who can't spot the subtle differences

Go-karting is fine, but why is there no explanation of the gigantic cat with neon-green eyes?

What cat? You're not a crazy person are you? Cause you sound like a crazy person.

Drive through the streets of tokyo on a go kart? I might pass on that sounds dangerous

Don't worry, they have you sign a 37 page disclaimer first.

I did it back in 2019 and it felt like it was probably one of the most dangerous things I’ve ever done…and I’m someone who thinks it’s fun to scuba dive with sharks.

Those carts got up to like 50mph and the entire time your head is somewhere around bumper height compared to all the traffic around you. Also no suspension on the carts.

I saw them in 2018 but I heard it was banned a year or so later. Did they get permission again?

I feel like every couple of years I see a new article saying it's been shut down for good, so sorry you won't be able to do it anymore tourists. It seems like something that should be easy to prevent from continuing, if Tokyo really did want it stop...

Other fun facts: it is legally required by every single travel show that visits Tokyo to do this.
