Japan is known for its cultural quirks. Be it the food, the growing gaming culture or the expanding robot arsenal, Japan never fails to set your imagination alight. Now, the country will be introducing multilingual robot concierges that would welcome visitors at a Tokyo Metropolitan Government's building to test their practical usage ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. The trial is part of the metropolitan government's efforts to help accelerate developments of such robots for use by foreign tourists visiting Japan, according to a news report published by NHK World. The government wants to slowly introduce these bots into Japan's everyday life to help commuters and people get information faster and more efficiently.
