IMPORTANT: Please note that teamLab Borderless in Odaiba has closed in 2022. teamLab Planets in Toyosu is still open, and there are plans to open another teamLab exhibition in 2023 to replace the Borderless exhibition in a central location in Tokyo.
The exhibition in Toyosu specializes in the experience of combining light with water. Therefore, before entering, everyone will be asked to remove their shoes and leave them in a locker and fold the pants up to the size of the knees.
It is recommended to people not to go wearing a skirt, since in the enclosure there are floors with mirrors on all sides.
Rooms in Planets
In the first room, you have to climb a real waterfall, and at the top, you can see a waterfall that thanks to the light is seen completely white. In the next room, there is a comfortable giant mattress that serves both to play, or just lie back and enjoy the view. After that, you enter a magical room created by millions of LED lights that recreate the universe, nature, paradise, so many things in a single space. In this room, all the walls are covered with mirrors, so that the visitor can be inside the light and be one with everything.
The next room is very fun with giant balls that bounce, move, and have different colors. Continuing with the experience of the water, you get to a real lake with koi fish made of realistic lighting that makes you feel like in a true pond in paradise. Finally, the universe of flowers.
