Teamlab Planets consists of four large spaces with different themes. Before you enter the first room, you walk through a dark, long corridor. Suddenly you’re standing in the water up to your ankles and out of the blue a waterfall flows down. Then a member of the museum staff is already waiting for you with towels to dry your feet, what a service! And then you’re ready to see the first part.
We walked through the last room in a rush. Literally everything around us was moving! The ground, the walls and the ceiling. People were lying scattered on the ground looking around them. We closed half our eyes and ran to the exit. Not only can this make you very dizzy and sick of vomiting, you have to be careful that you still make it to the toilet. Luckily it wasn’t that bad, but we decided to skip lying on the floor and staring at the ceiling anyway.
Despite the nausea, which was not that bad, this museum is a must during a holiday to Tokyo. Besides Teamlab Planets, you also have Teamlab Borderless. It comes down to the same thing, only Borderless seems to be even bigger. We thought it was a unique experience where you become part of the space (just look at the fish that adapt to you) instead of often staring at paintings or other art objects.
