I can be checked in and out of a hotel by a robot dinosaur?

Finally, my life is complete.

I've been living in this country for a decade, and it still finds ways to surprise me. This is just amazing.

This is the Japan I love!

I hope they make a velociraptor with a katana strapped to its hip for reception at one of the hotels...to be served by that...well, surely my life would be complete. I tip my hat to these guys. Impressive stuff!

Whilst a robot check-in sounds like an otaku's fantasy, the rest of us will continue to prefer being checked-in by cute young ladies.

Although, I'm concerned a little about what would happen when it is an emergency like blackout, fire and so forth, I'd like to stay there just for fun.

I love it as a piece of frivolity but I want to deal with people.

It was only a matter of time for such an automated hotel be built. The only thing missing, however, is a robotic masseur.
