Because nothing quite says Christmas like this?

According to Famitsu, the ricksaw will only be in operation from December 23 to December 25.

It will take folks on rides around Asakusa, an area of the city famous for rickshaw tours.

Waka waka waka.

People who want to ride the Pac-Man rickshaw can sign up at Namco Bandai’s site. Only a limited people can ride each day, so if there is a large demand for riders, there will be a raffle to pick winners.
