What people are saying about Tokyo

TeamLab was awesome! It was like being in a different space, the universe, such a world. However, when I entered, I accessed this site from my mobile phone, and when I tried to open the ticket display, it was difficult to open it and I was impatient! ️ Even when I did it in advance, it opened or did not open, so I took a screenshot of the ticket display, but I was told that I could not enter with that, so I could not enter at the scheduled time after all, and it will open after several times I was able to do it.

It is my first time in Tokyo and this was a perfect introduction to the city. Tomoko was great - showing me the old and the new - and giving me the background to the sites we visited. This was a great experience.

It was full of wonderful things and I was impressed. However, the course across the cushion used muscles that I don't normally use, so I had muscle pain for a few days (laughs).

Very quite because of corona, but super clean, great staff, and extra time to see everything since there was not a lot of people there.

Was an amazing and excellent experience with the very knowledgeable and friendly Nobu. Would recommend to anyone.
