▶ Tokyo will host the 32nd (thirty second) Summer Olympics in 2020 (two thousand twenty). The main concept of the event is to be “compact,” and most facilities will be located in the central part of Tokyo.
▶ The athletes’ village will be located at the center of the planned layout of venues, and 90 % (ninety percent) of the venues will be within an eight-kilometer range.
▶ The first Tokyo Olympics was held in 1964 (nineteen sixty-four). This was the first-ever Olympics held in Asia. And for many Japanese, it was a symbol of the country’s re-development and acceptance as a member of the international community after its defeat in the Second World War.
