Chose the Route that takes you through Shibuya Crossing! It’s not a far walk from the station, about 10 mins. Try out Mega Don Quiote on the way home as it’s open 24hrs and it’s insane. Anyway, we did 7pm for an hour and it...More

Hello! Thank you very much for choosing MariCAR! Shibuya Crossing at 7PM is the perfect scenario for some good Tokyo night photos!! Also thank you for these insightful tips to our other costumers! Best, MariCAR Team

Was great fun to drive around Shibuya in the Maricart. The Maricarts can go quite fast and low vantage point enhances the excitement and exhilaration of the ride. The Mario costume just ads to the fun! Recommended.

There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
