teamLab Borderless Tokyo

Museums. We’ve all been to them. But, have you been to an immersion museum? Before traveling to Tokyo, I had never experienced a museum quite like Teamlab Borderless. I’ve been to museums that have 3D displays, sure. And I’ve been to museums that have interactive artwork. But I had never been to a museum that combined both to create fully interactive rooms with digital art, bright lights, and relaxing music. Teamlab Borderless certainly takes art museums to a whole new level.

Two of their most popular rooms are the Lantern room (called The Forest of Resonating Lamps) and the Balloon room (called the Weightless Forest of Resonating Life). Makes sense, because these were my favorite rooms too – and I have great taste 😉

Seriously, though. The lantern room is incredible. 🙂 It makes you feel like you are back in time, experiencing one of the ancient light festivals. Or, maybe a Disney movie? It reminded me a lot of the lantern scene in Pixar’s Rapunzel movie.

And the balloon room is just fun. Lit up balloons everywhere – some stuck to the ground, others floating. A great adult playground.

Cost

The ticket costs for this museum are also very reasonable. For adults, the tickets are ¥3,200 or $29.53. And a child entry is ¥1,000 or $9.23. Of course, ticket costs may vary depending on when you are reading this, though. So please check out their website for up-to-date pricing. You can find all of that info here.

When To Visit

As with cost, how busy the museum is will also vary depending on when you visit. I was in Tokyo in September and would highly recommend visiting the museum in the earliest time slot. Because when we left in the afternoon, the museum was slammed with lines of people. Whereas, when we visited in the morning we were able to enjoy the rooms with hardly anyone. I’m so glad we visited when we did, because having the lantern room to ourselves provided us with beautiful photographs. All of these photos of me were taken by James Takumi Shyegun.

Location

TeamLab Borderless is located in Koto City, Tokyo. If you are staying at a popular part of Tokyo, like Shibuya, then the fastest and cheapest way for you to get to the museum would be to take public transport. I would recommend using a JR Pass. 

Once you get off at the Tokyo Teleport Station in Koto City, finding the museum is easy if you first look for the Giant Ferris Wheel. Because next to the Ferris Wheel is the Palette Town and Teamlab Borderless is on the second floor of this building.

The Palette Building is about a 5 minute minute walk from the Teleport Station.

No matter what time of year you visit Tokyo, I highly recommend visiting Teamlab Borderless. And if you do, tag or DM me your photos on instagram. I’d love to see what pictures you take 🙂
