Recently, go karts like those on this page are often seen in Tokyo. This is a new car rental service that started mainly for foreign guests. Foreign tourists dressed up as characters in the game “Super Mario Bros.” run on public roads such as Shibuya and Akihabara. We Japanese are very surprised.

Follow-up,
Nintendo sued Maricar for intellectual property infringement, resulting in the go-kart company paying compensation. Currently, the company continues to operate with a disclaimer explaining that it is not affiliated with Nintendo. However, it does not rent Mario or other costumes. Street Carts can be arranged through Klook.
