Acclaimed art collective teamLab has always been an exciting activity for those wanting an other-worldly experience. Thanks to recent additions and developments, teamLab Planets TOKYO has become a must-visit for any visitor. teamLab makes use of cutting-edge technology, including projection and motion capture. These days, their immersive, genre-bending galleries are among some of the city’s most popular tourist attractions.
Become bodily immersed in a Massive Art Space
The artworks are large-scale fusions of colour and light that change as visitors walk in and around them. On arrival at the attraction, guests remove their shoes and place them in a locker before embarking on the experiential adventure through the various installation rooms.
Get your feet wet and take sensory immersive art up a notch. Walk through water in one installation and wonder at fish as they swim on the surface of the water that appears to stretch out into infinity. In the Infinite Crystal Universe area, Pointillism uses an accumulation of distinct dots of colour to create a picture. Here, light points are used to create three-dimensional objects. The light sculpture extends infinitely in all directions.
Another installation is made up of 13,000 real orchids, not only do they smell different from day to night, but they also react to the viewers in the room making space for them to walk around.
A new flower shop recently opened, where visitors can take home orchids used in one of the artwork installations.
teamLab Planets is one of teamLab’s most successful projects. This multimedia experience has attracted over two million visitors, including celebrities and others from all over the world.
teamLab Planets TOKYO recently opened a sensational vegan ramen restaurant, blending Michelin-starred excellence from Kyoto with artistic brilliance from teamLab.
Enjoy Vegan Ramen in an interactive Art Environment
In October 2021, the popular Kyoto-based Vegan Ramen Uzu opened their first Tokyo location inside teamLab Planets, “Vegan Ramen UZU Tokyo”. You can enjoy a bowl of noodles while inside one of the art spaces. The food is completely plant-based, and the Tokyo location features some exclusive menu items. Their signature flower ramen is stunningly beautiful with no compromise on the taste!
The original Kyoto shop was highlighted by the Michelin Guide as a Bib Gourmand restaurant.
