The museum welcomes vegan ramen from Kyoto, a new artwork space, and a flower shop where visitors can take home orchids from one of the artworks.
“Vegan Ramen UZU Kyoto” opened in Kyoto in March of 2020, becoming hugely popular with hour-long wait times. At “Vegan Ramen UZU Tokyo,” vegan ramen can be enjoyed in the Reversible Rotation - Non-Objective Space or Table of Sky and Fire artwork spaces.
There will also be a new flower shop, “teamLab Flower Shop & Art,” where visitors can take home orchids used in the artwork Floating Flower Garden: Flowers and I are of the Same Root, the Garden and I are One, in which visitors become one with over 13,000 orchids. All of these facilities open on Friday, October 8 to the public, not just to teamLab Planets museumgoers.

At "Vegan Ramen UZU Kyoto,” which opened in March of 2020 in Gosho-Minami, Kyoto, teamLab was responsible for designing the space and other aspects of the restaurant, where guests can enjoy vegan food while surrounded by art.
“Vegan Ramen UZU Tokyo,” which will open at teamLab Planets, will have vegan ramen available for takeout, as well as to enjoy at the newly-opened Reversible Rotation - Non-Objective Space and Table of Sky and Fire artwork spaces. Flower Vegan Ramen, Green Tea Vegan Ramen, and Vegan Ice Cream will also be available only at “Vegan Ramen UZU Tokyo.”
The artwork space is freed from the physical boundaries of the surfaces of tables or chairs.
The Spatial Calligraphy rotates in the artwork space, every aspect rotating in the same direction. But because of the special characteristics of Ultrasubjective Space, it can appear to be rotating clockwise or counterclockwise.
Spatial calligraphy is calligraphy drawn in space, a form of calligraphy that teamLab has been exploring since it was founded. The artwork reconstructs calligraphy in three dimensional space to express the depth, speed and power of the brush stroke, and that calligraphy is then flattened using the logical structure teamLab calls ultrasubjective space. The calligraphy shifts between two and three dimensions.
Table of Sky and Fire
This table reflects the sky and the Universe of Fire Particles Falling from the Sky. The table is connected to the artwork and to the sky.
Human beings need to be connected to the world to live. teamLab hopes that people will eat something on this table while thinking that to live and to eat is to stay connected to the world.

This is a flower shop where visitors can take home orchids used in the artwork Floating Flower Garden: Flowers and I are of the Same Root, the Garden and I are One (photo above), in which visitors become one with over 13,000 orchids.
Orchids live on even after the flowers have fallen, blooming again and again, sometimes for decades. In order for people to take home a part of the work, we sell tote bags containing a variety of orchids. Those who wish to purchase orchids separately may do so from a more limited selection of orchid species.
teamLab Planets is a museum where you walk through water, and a garden where you become one with the flowers. There are four massive exhibition spaces and two gardens.
By immersing the entire body with other people in these massive body immersive artworks, the boundary between the body and the artwork dissolves, the boundaries between the self, others, and the world become continuous, and we explore a new relationship without boundaries between ourselves and the world.
Enter barefoot, immerse your body with others in the artwork spaces, and become one with the world.
