Robot culture in Japan

The other day, I went to Honda Plaza in Aoyama and saw ASIMO, a mascot robot of HONDA, an automobile manufacturer. It is always fun to see a mecanical robot behaving like a human being. I always come up with the old days when I dreamed about the age where robots work with people like the heroes I read in comics. It is about that age that the dream have come true.

It is said that a robot culture in Japan dates back the Edo period where Karakuri-ningyo, or a mecanical pupet dolls were popular in some of the festivals like Takayama-matsuri. I think that is true. And more, with the advanced technologies, robots in Japan continue to give dreams to all the générations.
