In Nagasaki, Japan when you walk into the lobby of a hotel you might be greeted by a robotic dinosaur.

In Japanese, the hotel is called the Henn-na Hotel, which translates to The Strange Hotel in English, and it certainly fulfills its name. The press from foreign countries are making a big deal about the hotel, however Japan is not. The prices are not expensive according to

Heido Sadawa, the founder of the Henn-na Hotel,  accomplished his childhood dream by creating the hotel. “I wanted to highlight innovation. I also wanted to do something about hotel prices going up,” Sadawa stated according to

A Japanese entrepreneur stated on twitter, “Well, hotels are better without people, aren’t they?” From the robotic dinosaur to the facial recognition, the Henn-na hotel is a huge milestone on the world’s technological journey according to
