Outline of exhibition

Through a tour of the futuristic Nanairo City, in which robots play an active role, this experience-based exhibition allows you to think about a future society in which we live alongside robots.

At this exhibit, the tours are now leaving for "Nanairo City," the future city where robots are active.
What if a robot becomes your friend? What if a robot could take over your work? What if part of your body is augmented by a robot and gives you new abilities? As you meet the residents of Nanairo City, imagine your future daily life living with robots.

Tour Introduction

A: Friend Robot Tour

Time Required: About 40 - 60 minutes
Recommended Age: Elementary school age and up

A tour in which you'll meet people who use the friend robot "Fren Robo", popular in Nanairo City. The first person you'll meet is a high school student from this city. Apparently, she's been best friends with her Fren Robo since she was little.

B: Craftsmanship Robot Tour

Time Required: About 60 - 80 minutes
Recommended Age: Junior high school age and up

A tour in which you'll meet people who use robots for making things. One of your destinations, "Kaede Handicrafts", is a workshop for Nanairo City's traditional craft, Nanairo carving. Rumor has it that a craftsperson is using robots to pass on her skills to future generations.

C: Body Robot Tour

Time Required: About 60 - 80 minutes
Recommended Age: Junior high school age and up

A tour in which you'll meet people who use robots as extensions of their bodies. One of your destinations is "Kitchen Titan", a popular Western restaurant and the pride of Nanairo City. It seems the owner is trying to make a delicious curry using a body extension device that expands his sense of taste and smell.
