VIDEO: Tokyo Tower Gets a New Information Robot

Don't be fooled by the trash-can looks. It speaks four languages.

With the opening of the enormous Tokyo Sky Tree, the Japanese public seems to have forgotten all about their previous structural heart-throb, the Tokyo Tower. But now, the Tokyo Tower has a new addition to it's audience draw, a guide robot that speaks, Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean.



The robot, Tawabo, will be wandering around the observation deck near the top of Tokyo Tower waiting to help guide some of the 100,000 foreign visitors Tokyo Tower gets each year and perhaps the occasional monster (assuming they're not lured to the shiny, new Tokyo Sky Tree.)


Would Tokyo Tower be on your Tokyo itinerary?
