IREX 2017: International Robot Exhibition 2017

Today, I attended IREX Special Guided Tour at Tokyo Big Sight.

There are many robots that Japanese companies can offer in the field of industry/manufacturing, nursing care/welfare/medical care, agriculture, forestry and fisheries/food, infrastructure, education and even entertainment.

I was also invited to International Reception to enjoy Japanese dance performance and food.

And I even received a nice souvenir, a pair of Japanese sake glasses in shape of Mt. Fuji (ordinary and Red Fuji).

How nice!

I enjoyed a day!

Gym before Office

A while ago, I was frustrated, building negative emotion, because of co-workers.

I knew exercise will release stress.

However, in the evening, I have other things to settle.

These could be simple as visiting dentist, having dinner with friends, etc.

Once I reach home, I get lazy to go out for exercise.

One day, my physical therapist suggested to go to gym for simple exercise, riding on bicycle for 20 mins, in the morning before I go to office.

My nearest gym opens at 7:00 am.

It’s rushing and need to move quickly to save every minutes; but based on my calculation, I could manage.

I tried it the other day and it worked.

I’ve been coming to gym for two weeks.

Today, I simply feel good (no stress), being at the quiet gym and gaining more ENERGY for a day!

Dinner at Shokkan, Solamachi, Sky Tree, Tokyo

I attended dinner function on behalf of my boss who is on leave.

Th restaurant is located at Sky Tree, the tallest building and communication tower in Japan with height of 634 m.


This nice Japanese cuisine restaurant, Shokkan is located on 30th Floor with a great view.

Of course, during the function, I couldn’t take any photos, but I arrived earlier to explore the area.


At the bottom of the Sky Tree, there is a shopping area named Solamachi, meaning sky town.

It was fun walking around the area till dinner time.


Though, there aren’t any photos of food, Japanese food was presented nicely by admiring and it was delicious.

When I’m in Asakusa area, I should make a reservation for dinner here to save cost for visiting observation room:  JPY 2,500. hahaha

Brainstorming 

I participated in a brainstorming session.

We discussed non-stop for three hours.

My body was too tired for this; but simultaneously, exciting.

I look forward for a new product to be developed for Japan market.

Business Trip to Nagoya (Digest)

I wanted to upload every night; but I couldn’t…simply because I was tired. 

My counterpart and also a friend joined this mission so we worked hard and enjoyed hard in Nagoya.

We continued our night chatting in my room till late because we miss each other.

She is an efficient officer and became friend  since last October.

Since then, she came in May this year and September.

We had few projects working together.

Nagoya Kanko Hotel is a nice hotel.



Breakfast menu is the same; but I didnt mind getting the same thing because food quality is good. 



Attended workshops, seminars, business meetings and networking.

I’m with friends so it was fun to attend all programme together.


As a part of programmes, I visited factories.

Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take any photos there; therefore, I cannot share anything with you, but I could say two factories are well advancedand, sophisticated and automated.

They are Toyota (automobile: Prius) and Hoden Seimitsu Kako Kenkyujo (HSK: aerospace engine parts).

I could take photos at Toyota Museum only.


Newly launched car: Hilux


Racing cars



And a robot to play music.


We also maximized our time after the programme.

Celebrating friend’s Birthday together.

Went out for dinner.

Nagoya local delicacy: Hitsumabushi.

We can eat eel in three different ways: 1. Eat as it is, 2. Add condiments such as Negi (Japanese leeks) and wasabi, 3. Add soup and seaweed to 2.


Grilled Seafood


Even Indian Food


Shopping at Donki (Don Quijote) @ Sakai, Nagoya.


And Japanese traditional shopping arcades: Oosu, Nagoya.


On Saturday, before we returned for Tokyo, I played golf at Golf 5 Yokkaichi Golf Course @ Yokkaichi, Mie.

The course is located one hour away from Nagoya and the play fee is reasonable for weekends: about JPY 13,000 inclusive breakfast and lunch.

This was planed during my stay; therefore, I had to buy golf shoes, glove and balls.

We can overlook Yokkaichi City from the club house.


It was a day to play a game.



It’s been hectic two weeks, working without break – not even weekends; but I enjoyed it.

I strongly believe that I could complete these projects because my friends and also colleagues from overseas helped me greatly, including moral support.

Today, I’ve been lazy.

I miss my bed and stayed till the appointment time for hair salon.

I got massage for head and shoulders which I needed at this moment.
