Vancouver Would Be Cooler if it Had a Mario Kart Cosplay Service Similar to Tokyo’s

I’m not 100% sure how Mari Car Tokyo functions or how it came to be that the civic government of the Japanese capital ever allowed it in the first place, but the cosplay rental go-kart company launched a couple of years ago (to the internet’s delight) and is not only 100% for real but still thriving.  You get to dress up in a variety of costumes with your friends and then zip around the city in a Mario-style go kart. The karts come complete with 4k “action cameras”, bluetooth speakers for tunes and an inter-kart communication system (so you can film yourself screaming at your friends over the music as you zoom around).

All one needs is a Japanese/International driver’s license. Needless to say, it looks like it would be way too much fun for Vancouver to tolerate. Too much wringing of hands would ensue. “But think of how it would impact traffic!” … “It looks dangerous!” … “Those costumes are so obnoxious!” We could all do with a little Tokyo, folks.
