President Obama played football with a Honda ASIMO humanoid robot while touring the Miraikan Science Expo in Tokyo today.

The US president is currently on a week-long tour to Asia where he will also stop by South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines, to reassure its allies of US support in the face of disputes and threats from China and North Korea.

While in Japan, Obama will meet the Japanese royal family, visit the Meiji Shrine in Shibuya and attend an official protocol-bound state dinner.
