My final day in Japan bought me back to Tokyo, where I visited digital art museum teamLab Borderless in Odaiba.
We arrived back in Tokyo mid-afternoon and with time to kill before our flight, we headed to Haneda Airport by monorail. We found the storage lockers at the airport and dropped off our suitcases, before heading off to Odaiba. Odaiba is an artificial island off Tokyo, a popular sightseeing destination which has shopping malls, restaurants and also attractions, including the famous rainbow ferris wheel. We had been there at the start of our trip so it was only befitting to see it on our way home.
I was determined to see teamLaB Borderless, at the MORI Building Digital Art Museum. It is a brand new, never seen before, giant art exhibition which plays with light and sound, all created to make illusions in the mind. Each rooms flows into another, and though disorientating, it is fascinating to see and experience.
We spent around three hours at teamLab Borderless and got really into seeing what adventure each room held. It was completely immersive and honestly, if you can get in, I would highly recommend it.
And just like that, my trip to Japan had come to end. We grabbed some dinner and headed back to the airport via monorail. I loved my time in Japan and honestly, I would go back again in a heartbeat.

We travelled to Japan with The Dragon Trip, a budget backpacking group travel provider, staying in hostels and with a group. It was the first time we had ever done this but it was a real experience. Our group was fantastic, a real mix of personalities and age groups, and we made some great friends on the trip. Travelling this way meant we saw a bit of everything on our trip and it gave us a real taste of Japan, leaving us wanting more. I would recommend using The Dragon Trip if you want to do an adventurous holiday on a tight budget.
I hope you enjoyed my Japan Diaries, hopefully I will be back with more travels soon!
