Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 01 Can anyone drive a MariCAR?

    As long as you have a license valid on Japanese roads, you can drive a MariCAR. However, MariCAR cannot be driven with licenses for mopeds or motorbikes. Caution: Maricar`s custom made go-kart is for public roads in Japan. You will need a valid Japanese driver`s license, or an International Driving Permit, or an SOFA License for US Forces Japan, or your own driver's license and an official Japanese translation of the license if you are from Switzerland, Germany, France, Taiwan, Belgium, Slovenia, Monaco. Remember! NO LICENSE NO DRIVE!! For More info.

  3. 03 Are there carts that allow for more than one passenger?

    Currently, we do not offer carts that can support more than one passenger at a time. However, we have Tuktuks (Three-wheeled cars from Thailand) and convertibles ready so that even people without licenses can take part in the fun. However, there is also a limit to the number of vehicles we have, so please contact us for more information.

  4. 04 What about parking during the drive?

    In the event that you have to park during the drive, coin-operated parking spaces and the like can be used just as with a normal car. However, please be aware that the customer will have to pay out of pocket in the event of theft or damage to the vehicle.

  5. 05 Can highways be used?

    Expressways, highways and roads requiring engines over 50cc cannot be used.

  6. 06 Can reservations be changed or cancelled?

    If the weather is poor, or in the case of a weather report indicating a high chance of rain, reservation cancellations or changes can be performed anytime at no cost. Otherwise, reservation cancellations and changes can be performed at no cost for up until 10 days before the date of the reservation. After that, we charge 50% of the overall fee as a general rule. However, we handle matters on an individual basis, so please contact us for more information.

  7. 07 What is the maximum number of vehicles that can be rented?

    We have 50 MariCARs at this location. Coupled with our other locations around Tokyo, we have over 100 vehicles. However, we recommend that groups traveling together limit their numbers to 20 - 25. Larger groups can have difficulties traveling together, as they may get separated at traffic lights. Please contact us with questions about the number of vehicles you would like.
