Team Lab Metsa Village Illumination –  The newly opened Metsa Village will host Team Lab’s Digitized Lakeside and Forest this winter 2018 / 2019. Digitized Lakeside and Forest is the name Team Lab have given it in English, from the Japanese it translates more like “Festival of light of the forest and lake”.

Unlike other night illumination in Saitama this one is charged (see information section). But it is also very different to any other night illumination to date. There are several interactive displays some using Team Labs signature balls of light (as in the featured photo). They also have the lake and others lit up.

Team Lab have enjoyed great acclaim this year due to a number of new events and installations in the Tokyo area, but Team Lab has been around in Saitama for much longer than that. They are the people who brought us the innovative play area “Team Lab Islands”, the very first of its kind (in Japan), in Lalaport in Fujimi:
