This was such an unreal experience. I brought my 73 year old dad as my parents came with me to Japan to watch me run the Tokyo marathon and it was an amazing way to see the city on one of our last days there. You drive right through Shibuya crossing, what better way to see it! Highly recommend for anyone visiting. The guides were amazing you drive right through the city streets but felt incredibly safe and respected by local drivers

It was an exhilarating experience Go-Karting around Tokyo and that is thanks to Monkey Kart Shinjuku. Ken, who was our guide, was well-versed in the city and possessed excellent driving abilities. He was also very accommodating and made certain that we had a good time. He took lots of wonderful pictures and made us feel at ease. Overall, I had a great time and would recommend them anyone looking for a fun tour guide in Tokyo.

Satar was epic, driving thru Shibuya square peak hour was 4000 people waving at us. Safety was great and you need to follow his clear directions. A follow car protects you although I think you are supposed to be unaware. I see 3 ratings but we can tell you now its only 5 from us. Will do again but you have to be a little mad.
