Planning a Trip to Japan? Head to Tokyo’s Digital Art Museum

/ 9 January 2019

Need more encouragement to book that Tokyo trip? Look no further than Japan’s boundary pushing digital art museum.

Ah Japan – home of delicious ramen, beer and a smorgasbord of eclectic sites and sounds. From the colourful streets of Harajuku to Shinjuku’s Robot Restaurant, it comes as little surprise that Tokyo is also home to a completely digital and interactive art museum.

Unveiled in Tokyo’s Obaida district in late June 2018, the Mori Building Digital Art Museum is a collaborative project between the teamLab crew and Mori Building Group, bringing together a group of artworks to form one jaw-dropping borderless world.

Take a look inside the three-dimensional, 10,000 square metre world to find 50 works across five different zones. Using over 520 computers and 470 projectors, all the exhibits are completely interactive, meaning you’re encouraged to touch, follow and disrupt projections. The movements are also totally dependent on how you move and interact with the space. In the words of teamLab, ‘no two visits to the Mori Building Digital Art Museum will be the same’.

If you’re planning a trip to Tokyo and are keen to check out this museum, make sure you arrange your tickets in advance. Like you might expect, demand to see the visually striking, interactive space is high, with everyone wanting to get in and capture the perfect Instagrammable shot.
