Initially hesitated about booking a gokart tour since it felt a little 'touristy', but I'm glad I ignored that voice and went on to do it anyway because it was great fun. We booked the 10am-12n slot on a weekday and we were the only two in the entire group so we had the tour all to ourselves! Since we were travelling in a much smaller group, we were able to go a lot faster and be less of a nuisance to traffic. Our guide Shuzi was very good at predicting the lights so we could all stop behind it together and took plenty of great photos during the stops. Highly recommend doing this especially in Osaka where the traffic is much more manageable, especially on a weekday!

Driving through the streets of Osaka and visiting the Osaka castle and the Tsutenkaku Tower and stopping for some photos was totally worth it!!!
I took the tour on Thursday, July 16, 2020 and I was the only customer. I was greeted by the very friendly owner who spoke excellent English! He gave me a crash course and then it was time to play!!! Since I was the only customer that day, this is due to the coronavirus, and being a weekday, I had all the attention from the owner! Inside the shop you’ll find a variety of funny costumes for you to wear during your adventure. I decided not to wear one because it was a hot day and I wanted to feel comfortable while recording for my YouTube video.
If you’re ever in Osaka, you must try this tour! I highly recommend it because you’ll get a unique experience driving through Osaka in a go-kart and sightseeing!! Although you’ll probably be the center of attention!
If you’re a resident of Japan, make sure you have a valid Japanese drivers license. If you are just visiting Japan, make sure you bring a valid international drivers license! Now what are you waiting for? Check it out!
Thank you Akiba Kart!!!!!!!!

We went on the 6-8pm go kart tour with Isa as our guide, what a great evening! Isa briefed us before setting out on the streets of Osaka, the karts are easy to drive and Isa ensured we were all OK and following him at all times, whilst giving clear hand signals when stopping at lights etc. Being a Sunday evening the streets of Osaka were pretty quiet and we had a great time driving some fun roads and picking up quite a bit of speed! We saw some of the main city sights and Isa stopped to point them out and also take lots of pictures of the group which he shared with us afterwards. It was so much fun and I would love to do it again!

My partner and I did the 6pm-8pm session during our trip to Osaka. It was definitely the highlight of our trip, and is unlike anything we've done before! Driving through the city amongst the busy traffic in a group of tiny gokarts is just amusing. Since we did the night session, driving amongst the cars with the cool breeze in your face and seeing the city all lit up was surreal and super fun!! The guides Isao and Shu were also super friendly and made sure to point out major sightseeing spots along the way. It was a great way to see the city from a different perspective and with the added bonus of not having to walk everywhere!

If you're headed to Osaka, I would definitely recommend for you to add this to your itinerary!!!

The best part of the experience was definitely my guide Isao. He makes you feel comfortable the moment you meet him. One of the most unique and interesting experiences i had in Osaka, let alone Japan.

Depending on the time frame you book, he asked me if i had any spots i wanted to see myself, i didnt have anything in particular i wanted to see so Isao took me through all the hot spots around.

Had a wonderful conversation with Isao at every red light and he even hops out to take photos of you in the kart in the popular areas around town!

Would definitely recommend this experience to everyone. You will get a lot of waves and smiles from the general public who are always smiling when they see a couple Disney characters darting around in these karts.

Overall 10/10!

This is a highly recommended experience and well worth the money! A lot of time spent karting through the streets and alleys of Osaka and getting to see the sights. You can feel like a celebrity as pedestrians take photos too!
The tour guides take good care of the whole group as well so you never feel unsafe on the roads.
Would definately go again on another trip to Osaka, 10/10.

This was a great experience and a fun way to get around the streets of Osaka. The two guides did a great job of keeping our group under control. Everyone around us was having a great giggle when we drove past with lots of photos and videos being taken. The costumes definitely made it more amusing! The drive lasted more than 100 minutes and was good value!

What a hoot! Driving around normal roads waving at pedestrians seeing the sights. Awesome. Guide was great navigating the traffic safely for us but would of been even more awesome if he had pointed out the famous landmarks for us. A must do
