Dive into the Digital Wonderland: Unveiling teamLab Planets Tokyo
Adventuring at teamLab Planets Tokyo

Greetings, fellow adventurers! Today, I'm about to unfold a magical experience that left me in awe during my trip to Tokyo in August 2023 – teamLab Planets. This digital art exhibit by Japan's renowned collective, teamLab, is not just an attraction; it's a sensory journey that will redefine your perception of art galleries forever.

The Marvel of teamLab Planets

Venturing a bit out of the city to Odaiba, you'll find teamLab Planets, a haven of seven multi-sensory, full-body immersive art displays. These exhibits seamlessly blend touch, sight, sound, and creativity, creating an otherworldly experience. From walking barefoot to standing in water, teamLab dissolves the boundaries between you, the artwork, and the world, providing an unparalleled encounter with art.

The team Behind the Magic

Before we dive into the immersive wonders, let's meet the masterminds – teamLab. This group of ultratechnologists, formed in 2001, is a powerhouse of artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, and architects. Their collaborative practice navigates the confluence of art, science, technology, design, and the natural world.

What to Expect at teamLab Planets

Prepare to get wet! teamLab's "Planets" exhibition takes you on a tactile journey through dark, maze-like rooms to brightly lit displays. The mirrored walls and dazzling lights play tricks on your perception, making the adventure a thrilling exploration. Get ready to charge your phone to the max because every corner is an Instagram-worthy moment.

When to Embark on this Adventure

Timing is everything when it comes to teamLab Planets. Though the exhibit is popular, the massive space ensures it rarely feels overcrowded. Optimal visiting hours are during the first and last two hours on weekdays. Pro tip: Book through Klook for a discount and a smoother entry experience.

What to Wear and Bring

Plan ahead for your journey into the immersive world of teamLab. Wear clothes that can handle a bit of water, and don't forget easily removable shoes. Borrow free wrap-around clothes if needed, and bring a reliable phone case. Selfie sticks aren't allowed, but a small smartphone gimbal, like the Insta360 Flow, can capture your adventure without a hitch.

How Long to Immerse Yourself

The interior of teamLab Planets is vast, covering a whopping 10,000 sqm. Be patient for that perfect shot, and if possible, choose less busy times for a more intimate experience. Two hours, excluding travel time, is ample to explore all exhibits thoroughly.
