Let's-a-go! Except, not so fast, Mario.
By now, locals in Japan are used to seeing foreigners zipping through Tokyo in bright red go-karts. Short of tossing banana peels at their rivals, tourists have been satisfying their need for speed by taking Nintendo’s beloved Mario Kart franchise to the city streets. They often don onesies to resemble characters like Mario, Yoshi, and Princess Peach, and cruise alongside actual, real-world traffic, smiling and waving to the commuters around them.
