Commencement of robot rental service aimed at providing multilanguage tourism guidance for tourists


Keikyu Corporation, which provides access from Haneda Airport to Tokyo and Yokohama areas, is now offering Japan's first ever communication robot rental service for providing multilanguage tourism guidance to international tourists.
This service allows tourists from overseas to rent the "RoBoHoN" communications robot from the GLOBAL WiFi Haneda Airport Counter. In addition to Japanese, RoBoHoN can now also communicate in English and Chinese, and can be taken with international tourists on their trip in Japan to help them experience and learn about Japanese culture and create memories.
RoBoHoN includes a "Robotenashi" app, which allows it to introduce recommended spots to visit based on location information, and RoBoHoN can also take photos, display photos and video via a built-in projector, dance, sing and more, all in 3 languages. Not only can tourists rent RoBoHoN at the GLOBAL WiFi Haneda Airport Counter, they can also purchase a variety of other RoBoHoN goods including RoBoHoN plastic models, original RoBoHoN clothing, table stands, and more.
