Today we were going to teamLab Borderless and the nearby attractions on the same man made island, Odaiba.
teamLab Borderless was a famous light show in Tokyo. One of the visitors we met during our stay in Seoul highly recommended this. It was basically a high tech light show with some interactive exhibits. Once you are there, prepare to take lots and lots of pictures. Carry a backup battery and your best low light camera if you can. The line up to go inside the place was huge. We waited for about an hour even though we arrived a bit early. Once we were inside, however, we did not feel too crowded. However, some of the exhibits inside had crowd control and required another line up (some up to 40 minutes).
If your kids are bored, there are drawing areas and other kids activities where kids can enjoy themselves. Our kids didn't feel bored inside but they complained about the line up for some of the exhibits.
Overall, we think that it's a nice experience but if you are not into Instagram, this is an exhibit that you can skip.
Megaweb Toyota City Showcase
On the same artificial island as teamLab Borderless was the Megaweb Toyota City Showcase. It was a free Toyota theme park where you can immerse yourself into the world of automobile. There were many interactive displays about car safety and new car technologies.
Among all of the exhibits, we loved the 4D theatre where the entire theatre floor was lifted and shook alongside the movie. It was like what you'd experience in a paid theme park.
Since it was getting closer to Tokyo Olympics 2020, there were also special exhibits on Paralympics to help us understand the difficulties those athletes faced during their competitions.
