This week’s visual candy treat is the Floating Flower Garden by teamLab currently on display at Miraikan, The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo. The Floating Flower Garden is a new addition to teamLab’s Future Park. The exhibition has been extended until May 10th. Due to its overwhelming popularity of Future Park, visitors on weekends and holidays will need to pick up a numbered ticket for a timed admission into the exhibition. However, no ticket is needed to see the Floating Flower Garden which is on the 7th floor of Miraikan.
