Walking on Drift Ice
TeamLab Borderless is a new-concept museum. No map is available for the place, and there is no set course for viewing its exhibits. Visitors wander freely inside the vast building. Even if you return to a room you visited earlier, it will not look the same as it did before. All the artworks are constantly changing in this 10,000-square-meter space.
At the museum, you become fully immersed in the artworks. If you touch images, they respond to your movement. I recommend that visitors wear white or light-colored clothing so that they will be able to blend into the light displays. The museum consists of about 60 digital artworks divided into five zones. Heels and sandals are not permitted in the Athletics Forest zone, but visitors can borrow flat shoes for free.
Before leaving, you should go to En Tea House, where you can see a flower blooming inside your teacup. All the tea varieties cost 500 yen. I chose yuzu (Japanese citron) tea, and it was delicious.
