Tokyo is slowly beginning to reopen and people are starting to go outside again – while social distancing, wearing face masks and adjusting to the new normal. Already, JR Harajuku Station has debuted a fancy new building, Sanrio Café is opening in Ikebukuro, and more museums are now welcoming visitors.
Here are some of the ways teamLab Borderless is protecting its visitors and employees.
Safety precautions for admission
The maximum number of guests allowed will be halved to increase social distancing.
Guests will also have to buy tickets for specific times and dates.
Temperature will be taken at the door. If a guest has a fever of 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher, they will be denied entrance and given a full refund.
Guests should not visit the museum if they have cold symptoms, or have returned from overseas, or had contact with someone who has, in the past two weeks.
Face masks are required, except for children under the age of three.
Safety measures inside the museum
Guests are required to socially distance from other groups. If you fail to do so, an employee will remind you.
Visitors should take advantage of the freely available hand sanitiser and vinyl gloves.
A notification will be released on the official website if someone in the building contracts coronavirus.
The exhibits Floating Nest (featuring ‘Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Transcending Space - Floating Nest’ and ‘Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are Destined to be Chased as Well, Transcending Space - Floating Nest’) and ‘Light Forest Three-dimensional Bouldering’ will remain temporarily closed.
Online ticket sales for teamLab Borderless start Thursday, June 4 at 12pm.
