All eyes on you guarantee! You can ride with a group or ride privately, MariCAR is fully equipped to make your experience a very important one. Don't trust us but trust our valued customers, because they say "Once is never enough"!

We drove around and site seeing as characters. The guide was super energetic and took photos for us the entire time. People on the streets were curious and friendly. It is an unique experience in Tokyo. Must try!

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
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.
