Robot Interactions: Experience Osaka with Orihime
On Sunday 13 October, as Japan plays Scotland in the Rugby World Cup, join us to experience a glimpse of Osaka’s bustling nightlife.
Visitors to The Shop at Japan House London from 12:00 to 15:30 on Sunday have the unique opportunity to virtually meet and talk with people in Japan with the help of the robot called ‘Orihime’.
By engaging directly with the robot, interact with passers-by in Osaka, ask them questions and explore the lively city centre, while discovering aspects of everyday life in one of Japan’s major cities.
The event is free to attend and is available for all visitors who drop into The Shop.
