If you are in Tokyo over the holidays there is something very cool that you will want to ride. It’s one of those rickshaws you sit in and the dude with massive leg muscles runs you around the city. Only this rickshaw isn’t a basket that you sit in, it looks like Pac-Man.
You sit inside his mouth and I assume you can make the wakka-wakka-wakka sound effects all you want. The ride starts around the Komagata Bridge and takes passengers around Asakusa to see the sights.
Apparently, if you happen to see the Pac-Shaw riding around at night and capture a long-exposure photo from the side, you’ll get a cool surprise too:
If you want to take a ride in Pac-Man’s mouth, you need to follow the directions over on the Namco Bandai website. Only a limited number of riders can go each day, exactly how many that is we don’t know. If too many people want to ride, they will hold a lottery to see who can go. Now they need some ghost rickshaws to chase this one around Tokyo.
