Tips for visiting with kids
Visiting teamLab Planets with kids is an unforgettable experience and is definitely worth the effort. Here are some tips to make sure you have a great time!
1. Make sure to bring enough supplies for the kids – As you will be assigned a locker to store your family’s belongings, it’s important to bring enough of what you need for your kids during your visit. This includes snacks, water, and any other items they might need throughout the day.
2. Be prepared to take off shoes and socks - As soon as you enter the premises, all guests must remove their shoes and socks and leave them in their lockers. This is a common practice in Japan, so be sure to dress comfortably so your kids can take off their shoes and socks with ease.
3. Wear pants that can be rolled up. Do not wear skirts or dresses as many of the floors are mirrored. They do, however, offer shorts for those visiting in skirts or dresses.
4. Be mindful of the rules – As you explore the different installations, make sure your kids know to follow the rules in order to keep themselves and others safe. This includes not running or pushing other guests, and being mindful of the interactive installations that require more care.
