Mario Kart in the Streets of Tokyo
If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t yet, start now!), you probably saw that I recently lived out my childhood fantasy of playing real life Mario Kart. Located in several spots around Tokyo and surprisingly somehow legal, these go-cart tours are a unique way to tour parts of the city. The tour normally costs around $80 US, but if you book through the discount site Voyagin, you can get it for just $47! Still a little pricey for when you’re traveling longterm on a budget, but it does include your choice of ill-fitting, patent-infringing, motor oil stained costume.
In order to bring you right into the action, I strapped on an action camera and filmed the whole things. Check out some of the highlights in the video below!
