Starting with a powered generating floor, to the robot playing the violin and a camera that can sense smiling faces, the Japan Pavilion is attracting thousands of people every day.
Divided into 3 parts, an exhibition area, an interactive area and a theme performance area, the Japan pavilion is one of the places expo visitors want to be.
So just what is it that is attracting so many people to this pavilion?
"We would like to introduce Japanese very advanced technology for the future including the advanced Camera to focus the smile of the people."
Hiroshi Tsukamoto is the Commissioner General at the Japan section of the world Expo.
He explains some of the great jaw-dropping innovations in the Japan pavilion starting with the roof of the structure itself.
"The environmental element is very important. And so in the shape of our pavilion we are utilizing a cold tube. And we have three holes and 3 horns, which take the air from the earth and take the water from the sky. On the roof it's a special solar power panel and its very light and after this it's very easy to break and recycle it."
This Pavilion too has a huge TV screen, which is said to be the largest of its kind in the world.
A recent technology from the Japanese, a "Life Wall", developed by Panasonic Corporation, is very interactive and visitors here are enchanted by the future home entertainment system. This is also a future concept model of the "Wonder Camera with a huge set of panels along the walls presenting ultra-realistic images."
"We can touch the TV and we can expand the TV size if we would like to see something and we have an interactive relationship with the TV and so we call it a life TV. "
When people think of Japan, they often think of robot technology.
And with Japan having an aging population, the Toyota Motor Corporation is developing a Partner Robot to support people's activities.
Tsukamoto explains the latest Robot technology being showcased here.
"The attractiveness in our Japan Pavilion is a Robot that plays the violin and the Chinese song Jasmine. ...(Nillah)..How soon do you think people will be able to use Robots?.......Japan is the most advanced country to use a robot. More than 40% of total utilization of Robots is happening in Japan. In the future we think that old people can be taken care of by the robots but at this moment robots are of very high cost and so it will take time."
For sure it might take time, before this sort of technology is widely adopted throughout society.
At the same time, Japan is also developing a real personal mobility vehicle driven by electricity which looks like a moving chair amongst other innovations.
Meanwhile, those who have seen these innovations first hand are looking forward to the technology displayed here becoming reality.
And indeed the future is where Japan has long looked to.
And that's why the Japan Pavilion here is a big hit with the crowds willing to queue three hours just to catch a glimpse of what the future might look like and what kinds of technology it will bring.
They say, "if you can't see the future you haven't been dreaming hard enough", and the Japan Pavilion is here to show you that the future is much closer than you may think.
