Also the Floating in the Falling Universe of Flowers, where you can lie down or sit and feel like your body floats among flowers.
One of the most popular is The Infinite Crystal Universe, full of colored tubes that keep changing color making a completely new and amazing experience.
This area has the main attraction of the museum and the newest trend in Instagram and Tik Tok: the Floating Flower Garden, a three-dimensional mass of flowers. The artwork space is completely filled with flowers and mirrors, creating a magic atmosphere as if you were in a fairy tail world.
