KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 21 (Bernama) -- Visitors from overseas purchasing tickets for teamLab Planets have increased by 136 per cent compared to the same month in 2019 (before COVID-19), with one in three visitors coming from overseas.
According to a statement, more than half of the visitors from overseas purchased their tickets before visiting Japan, and a trend has been seen in which the museum is one of the purposes for people to visit Tokyo.
teamLab Planets is a museum where visitors walk through water, and a garden where people become one with the flowers. The experiential museum has welcomed a cumulative total of over three million visitors since its opening in July 2018.
On Oct 11, 2022, the Japanese government significantly eased the COVID-19 border measures. The ban on individual travel to Japan has been lifted, visa exemptions have returned and the daily limit on the number of people entering Japan has been removed.
In response, tourism to Japan has resumed properly for the first time in about two and a half years.
In recent years the museum has been featured in notable publications such as Lonely Planet, a world-famous travel guidebook, which introduced it as one of “The 7 best museums in Tokyo that even Tokyoites line up for”, as well as in “The 26 Best Things to Do in Tokyo” by Condé Nast Traveler.
The museum will continue to provide people from around the world an experience based on the concept of teamLab Planets, “Immerse your Body, and with Others, Become One with the World”.
