Japanese robots are the most famous robots in the world and there is a good reason behind this. The love of the Japanese people for the robots is the deepest one and it dates as far as back as the 17th century. The first ever robot which was built in Japan was named as 'Karakuri' and this was known as one of the finest robots in the world. This robot used to carry tea on a tray for the guests and it would return to its master only after the guest had taken the cup of tea from the tray. It is will be safe to say that the Japanese robots have been the most special in the world and they are still holding their place.
Robots have always taken a special place in the hearts of the Japanese and you should not be amazed if you happen to see a Japanese robot do the religious ceremonies when you are on a trip to Japan. Robots in Japan make sushi. They also plant the rice as well as paddies of the rice. Different types of robots can be seen which are either made in Japan or by a Japanese person. They work as receptionists, they clean the corridors of the offices and robots have also been made to feed the elderly people.
Due to the widespread popularity of Japanese robots, the government is always favorable to fund the large scale researches in the field of robotics. The funding has gone up in the recent years by as much as 5 times in just four years. For a long time, Japanese robots have been portrayed as the helpers of the Japanese people and that is the reason why they are so popular in Japan.
The wider acceptance of the robots in the Japanese culture is also due to the fact that the religion of most of the Japanese people often blurs the difference between the living and non living creatures. Therefore it is completely normal for a Japanese person to accept robots more than any western person. That is also the reason why Japanese robots are so popular and so much more advanced than most robots from other countries.
