New teamLab Borderless

In the heart of Tokyo’s latest development, Azabudai Hills, the much-anticipated teamLab Borderless has opened its doors. This digital art museum is set to become a premier attraction in Tokyo, and today, we’ll take a closer look to help you decide if it’s worth a visit.

What is TeamLab Borderless?

TeamLab is a group known for producing digital content and art exhibitions. The unique aspect of their exhibitions is the immersive experience they offer to visitors.

TeamLab Borderless, previously located in Odaiba, was visited by 2.3 million people annually. After closing in 2022, it has now reopened in a more convenient location near Tokyo Tower.

Getting There & Tickets

The newly established teamLab Borderless is conveniently located in the basement floor of Azabudai Hills, directly connected to the Kamiyacho station of the Tokyo Metro Hibiya line.

Tickets, starting from 3800 Yen, depending on the date. Tickets can be purchased on the official TeamLab website or through travel agencies like Klook.

The site opens at 10am. I arrived around 9am to check where the entrance to the venue is, but somehow staff guided me to the line and I was prepared for a long line, but to my surprise, I became the very first visitor. The line quickly grew, with a significant portion of visitors from abroad. Now the gate opened. You can arrive a little earlier than the time of entry you booked.

So many medias gathered for the opening of Tokyo’s new attraction in the city center.


Entering the World of TeamLab

Upon entering teamLab Borderless, you’ll be prompted to install the TeamLab app. The app provides information about the art pieces near you. So you might want to make sure that you have it before you go.

What Experience would be like

Visitors will walk through and explore the rooms with about 50 different digital exhibitions without any map. Many of the exhibition, new digital drawing are created by computer at the time you are there, so it is said you cannot see the same picture in the same location anymore in your life.

Something notable was the nice smell of soap or flowers across the venue. It definitely increase the experience of the digital art museum.

Sketch Ocean: A Creative Playground

One standout exhibit is Sketch Ocean, where you can draw your own fish and watch it soar into the air. This interactive feature appeals to both children and adults. It’s free to have your creation take flight, and if you’re particularly proud of your artistic fish, you can even order a T-shirt with your design.

Tea House EN: A Tranquil Rest Spot

If you get tired of walking, there is a tea house inside the museum called EN. Here, you can enjoy a cup of tea and ice cream in a digital art experience where flowers and butterflies enlighten your treats. It provides a serene break within the immersive world of TeamLab Borderless.

Light Sculpture

Please make sure not to miss the room called “Light Sculpture”. Somehow only this room is on the left from the entrance, so easy to miss. I saw on Internet review that they couldn’t find this room. This is one of the best one in my opinion.
