Picture of the Week World Expo in Aichi, Japan

World Expo 2005 was a specialized international exhibition held in Aichi Prefecture, Japan from March 25 to September 25, 2005.

The theme of the Expo was “Nature’s Wisdom”, with national and corporate pavilions expressing themes of ecological co-existence, renewable technology, and the wonders of nature. The pavilions were built out of recycled or recyclable materials to minimise the environmental impact on the site.

The key attractions for the Expo were “Satsuki and Mei’s House”, a recreation of the house from Hayao Miyasaki’s famous movie My Neighbor Totoro. ASIMO, Honda’s humanoid robot, The Toyota Partner Robots, and the Growing Village Pavillion, which featured a variety of tree shaping art work.
