Tsukumo Robotto Ō-Koku
Lonely Planet review for Tsukumo Robotto Ō-Koku
Fancy a bipedal humanoid robot? Or would a talking Hello Kitty do the trick? Japan’s first robotto (robot) shop (2000) is at the forefront of the home robot revolution; also sells DIY robot kits. It’s one of several ō-koku (kingdoms) in the Tsukumo building, which also includes a pasokon ō-koku (personal computer kingdom), a monitā-ō-koku (monitor kingdom) etc. Did we mention otaku love Akihabara?
