Pepper

Not only will robots help take customer orders, they will also interact with customers at tables, take photos, and offer new, fun experiences throughout the parlor.

NAO

NAO robots will perform delicate, precisely choreographed dances. Other performances will take place throughout the day at special times.

Whiz, the AI cleaning robot

Whiz, the AI cleaning robot, will rely on its self-driving technology to clean Pepper PARLOR after hours. Robots are playing a starring role, even away from the customers’ view!

Atmosphere

Interior Designing

Mr. Yasumichi Morita has designed a comfortable space in which robots exist in harmony with lush greenery. Wood, stone, greenery, metal, soil, and other natural materials abound throughout the interior. One can see pendant lights made with dry moss, extending the sense of a peaceful walk through a forest.

A rhythm created by original furniture and colorful mauve pink, purple, blue, and gray fabrics creates a high-quality lounge space. The earthen walls created by Naoki Kusumi, a plaster craftsperson, and green decorations designed by green artist Yuko Bito are also featured highlights of the café interior.
