Say ‘Konnichi Wa’ to Robots in Tokyo Airport as Population Ages

Say “konnichi wa” (hello) to the newest worker at Tokyo’s Haneda airport -- a robot.

The Tokyo city airport will lease 11 robots in September that will clean the facilities and carry baggage. Authorities say that’s just the beginning, and if the robots are good at the work then more airports around the country will hire them.
