Tokyo One Day Itinerary: Odaiba with Kids

teamLab Planets TOKYO (Toyosu) and teamLab Borderless (Odaiba)

teamLab Planets TOKYO (Toyosu) and teamLab Borderless (Odaiba) – both installations are the brain children of teamLab and provide a 360 degree immerse light and environment experience. Although both are created by the same company and only 2 kilometers apart in location, the two are very different experiences. If you can not attend both, hopefully you can read our review to determine which one is best for your family. If you can only attend one with kids, I would choose Borderless in Odaiba, but both are great fun if you have to chose based on availability of tickets. Reserved tickets are needed for both.  Have fun! If you have little kids you may also want to consider the new teamLab exhibit called Little Planet Digital Play Space – super for 2-7 years olds. While you’re there visit our Odaiba Itinerary with Kids and our Toyosu/Odaiba area kid friendly locations.

Little Planet is a permanent digital exhibition that combines digital technology with play. They offer various digital experiences to keep your child active and engaged. If your kids loved the TeamLab Borderless/Planets exhibition they`ll love to pop into Little Planet. Our kids loved the sand party area where they used special tools to locate digital treasures in a sand box. Use the tools (located under the treasure board) to hover over an area in the sand. When blue circles appear begin digging in that area to discover a digital treasure. Dig streams, build mountains and locate all the treasures! Read More…
