TeamLab Collaborates With Vegan Ramen Shop To Create Tokyo’s Most Photogenic Noodle Spot
Need some stunning digital art with your plant-based vegan ramen? We have the place for you!
TeamLab’s digital art instillations continue to be hugely popular with art lovers around the world, and their latest venture sees them plunge into the world of one of Japan’s biggest exports – ramen. But not just any type of ramen; as the name suggests, UZU Vegan Ramen specializes in plant-based vegan ramen.
The collaboration originally started in March 2020, when teamLab designed an art instillation in the Kyoto branch of Vegan Ramen UZU. The collaboration was a huge success with people lining up waiting up to an hour to enter the restaurant.
And now vegans and art lovers in Tokyo can rejoice, as Vegan Ramen UZU is now available at the TeamLab Planets Museum in Toyosu, although you don’t need a ticket to the museum itself to enter the restaurant. There are four different bowls of ramen on the menu for you to sample, with a selection of vegan ice cream to follow.
▼ Miso Vegan Ramen (Spicy) – 1,320 yen (US $ 11.62)
▼ Vegan Ramen with Soy Sauce – 1,320 yen
▼ Vegan Green Tea Ramen – Tokyo Branch Exclusive – 1,650 yen (US $ 14.53)
▼ Flower Vegan Ramen (chilled) – exclusive to Tokyo with a limited number available daily – 1,980 yen (US $ 17.43)
Customers can enjoy their ramen while admiring the art installation called Reversible rotation – Non-objective space. The installation sees vivid brushstrokes pierce the walls, an art style for which TeamLab is famous. The strokes all move in the same direction, although they appear to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on how you look at them. Brush strokes also change between 2D and 3D.

In addition to the Tokyo branch of Vegan Ramen UZU, TeamLab has also added a few new areas for customer enjoyment.
The Table of Heaven and Fire
La Table du Ciel et du Feu hopes to make visitors reflect on the importance of being connected to the world as human beings. TeamLab hopes that guests will use this table as a place to eat, and in doing so, recognize that eating and living is about being connected to the world.
▼ One Stroke Bench
This interlocking bench is designed as a place for kids to play, guests to eat, or just a place to rest and relax.
There is also a florist area where customers can take home the orchids used in the exhibit. Floating Flower Garden: Flowers and I are from the same root, the garden and I are one. The exhibition, which opened earlier this year, uses more than 13,000 orchids to invoke the feeling of walking in a Zen garden.

All orchids used are real, because orchids can survive by absorbing water from the air. And they’re tough too – even after the flowers have fallen, if carefully cared for, they can live for a long time and bloom again. The type of orchid used in the exhibit is known to live for up to 50 years.
Guests can now take home the orchids used in the exhibit in a commemorative tote bag. However, that depends entirely on whether orchids actually fell – that is, don’t go and dismantle the exhibit!
