Japan Robot Week 2020

10:00am – 5:00pm
Free

Japan Robot Week is a trade show focusing on “service robots”. This event alternates each year with the cooler sounding IREX (the International Robot Exhibition).

If you’re wondering what a service robot is, the organizers give examples such as nursing robots, life support robots (we’re thinking this means general support rather than one that follows you with your kidney dialysis machine) and disaster response robots.

With the huge increase in the popularity of drones and the widespread plague of the SoftBank robot ‘Pepper’ there should be some interesting kit on display.

Entry is free, but you need to register in advance.

(And don’t forget to check out our guide on other ways of meeting robots in Tokyo.)

Note: The event moved to Nagoya for 2020 due to the Olympics and was then canceled due to COVID-19. It may return to Tokyo in future.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
