Finding the go kart store front was a challenge but the activity was fun. Paid for a 2 hour go cart experience but we stopped once for a 20 min break that no one asked for. The staff were fun and knowledgeable. We were required to watch a safety video before going out and this was very helpful. You can wear costumes but they were filthy so my husband and I passed on that!

Awesome time! Huro was great and we felt safe the whole time. I was skeptical doing this as it seemed like something the young kids do but it was hella fun for us seniors! Great way to see Osaka on a short day trip from Kyoto.

Zip through the busy streets of Osaka to all the popular sightseeing areas like Dotonbori, Osaka Castle, Namba and more. Choose a 1 or 2-hour course that suits your needs, style up as your favorite character and get ready to be the center of attention.

The mini car with its automatic transmission, signal lights, and adjustable seats allows you to drive as fast as 60km per hour. Zoom past the normal-sized cars and flash a smile to the tourists as they snap away. Be ready with your Japanese driver's license, Japanese SOFA license, or an international driving permit and you'll be ready to hit the road.
