Official Street Go-Kart Tour - Okinawa Shop

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Once you arrive at the shop, please check in, stating your name and reservation time and present your international driving permit and passport.  Once validity of the international driving permit is confirmed, you will be handed the "terms and conditions" and waiver to sign.  Upon signature, please hand the waiver to a staff and choose a costume.  All customers wear the costumes over their clothing so there is no changing room but there are lockers for your personal belongings.  Once all the participants are ready, you will be briefed on how to operate the karts and lecture you on safety precautions.  After the lecture, you will hop in a kart and turn on the engine.  Once all engines are running, then the Guide will lead the group on to the tour. 


    Once you leave the shop, the excitement begins!


    As long as you know how to drive a regular car, handling a kart is not so difficult. Just make sure to keep up with the guide because 2 to 3 hours is definitely not enough time to see all of Okinawa!

    You will not only see but drive around Naha airport, drive through the Senagajima Island and have a picture break.  Then drive down through the Kokusai Main street to really enjoy Okinawa, the tropical Island in Japan!!

    The Japanese locals will wave at you, greet you with a big smile, and take pictures of you! A worm welcome you know you can’t receive just by walking down the street!

    You will have a short break in the middle of the tour. 

    Yes, you will be driving for at least 1.5 hours to 2 hours depending on traffic. 

    It may seem long, but most of our customers ask for seconds!  1 is never enough once you experienced THIS!
