Go-Karting Night Illumination [2:30pm Group 2]

2016 January 24 (Sunday)

Tokyo Area

Go-karting on public road! When the sun is going down and the city lights are shining brighter, we will explore Asakusa and see Sky Tree in many different colors. A little break for some warm drink at the bottom of Sky Tree from chilly but exciting night drive.

Put on some lights, play some crazy tunes on loud speakers, and drive around your favorite part of town! Expect a lot of pedestrians and drivers take many pictures of you! ;)

Another Only-In-Japan experience!

Private session is available in convenience with your schedule! Just inquire to info@tokyogaijins.com.
