Since we have to keep track of robot related events here in Japan, like competitions, exhibitions, trade shows, and seminars, we decided to make that part of our personal calendar public so that everyone can get a better idea of what's going on.
If you check the left sidebar you'll find a new button that links to the calendar and you can see an embedded version of the calendar below.
We'll try to keep the information up to date, and in English as much as possible though we normally use the Japanese. Whenever possible we'll also include some background information on each entry along with a url link to the corresponding event website.
You can bookmark this post to easily comeback to the calendar at anytime, or click on the sidebar link, The calendar is implemented using the Google Calendar application, so you could also setup a free Google account, if you don't already have one, to directly access the XML and other calendar feeds.
If there are Japan robot related events that we haven't shown in the calendar, then please let us know and we'll be happy to consider adding them.
