It was really good fun driving around the streets of Akihabara. Quite surreal the speed you can get up to also. Costumes are a nice touch.

We loved this tour so much we want to do it again! Dai san, our instructor, was so funny and nice! It was a blast driving through Akihabara! Wish it could've lasted longer! Definitely worth it!
Didn't drive due to IDL not sufficient.

Was raining. Tour operator emailed the day prior giving us the option to cancel. Arrived with international licence. But told it was not what they needed to allow us to drive. That my friend needed a different licence type - The international permit, ,(which I had brought with me). So would not allow her to drive on this licence or let her drive using the instant online version. I had done a similar tour in the past so wasn't interested in doing this again so we both walked away. Locals hate these carts driving through the streets so no great loss for me, friend was really disappointed. Was advised by our local authorities that the international licence she acquired for the trip was what she required to drive overseas.
