The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between the usage of AI robots with city revitalization through education. Besides, this study was conducted to find out the effectiveness and weaknesses of AI robots when used in teaching English in schools. This research method is a qualitative method with case studies in Toda Daini Elementary School, Toda City, Saitama Prefecture, Japan, through interviews. Also, Toda City Board of Education's literature data was used for this study. The results of this study show that the usage of AI robots has an effect on city revitalization, and has advantages and disadvantages in implementing English teaching in Japan.
