Regardless of the Tokyo Olympic 2020 preparation fears about extreme heat ballooning costs and accommodation shortages organizers of the Tokyo Olympic 2020 and Paralympics are resolutely upbeat with one year to go until the opening ceremony and not without some justification. Olympic Games followers who want to witness live action of the Olympic Games can Buy Olympic Tickets online.
Masa Takaya said that. “Tokyo Summer Games 2020 has not really faced any major issues adding the International Olympic Committee and International Paralympic Committee are very satisfied with our preparations.”
That assessment requires downgrading to minor issues such as the scrapped original stadium plan a replacement design without an Olympic cauldron plagiarized logos that were also scrapped a bidding corruption scandal and a budget on course to quadruple from initial projections.
Pessimists might say vote-buying and cost overruns are Olympic east African long-distance runners and east European gymnasts and none of this has dampened enthusiasm from fans sponsors and broadcasters in Japan or around the world.
More than 7.5 million people in Japan registered for the first ticket lottery making every event massively oversubscribed 90% of applicants are estimated to have come away empty‑handed in the first round in June and two more rounds have been scheduled for later this year.
Then there are the hundreds of thousands expected to come from around the world to a country already showing signs of struggling to cope with a massive tourism boom.
“Japan has gone from 9 million visitors in 2012 to more than 30 million last year and is aiming for 40 million by Tokyo 2020 says Dr. Mike Duignan professor of sports management at Coventry University who is in Japan researching a Tokyo Zones project looking at the Games impact. This rate of growth is not maintainable and Japan hasn’t really been prepared in many ways including in terms of English language and accessibility.”
The influx of foreign tourists has already caused a backlash in some quarters, despite the welcome shot in the arm for the economy that a record ¥4.51 trillion (£33.5bn) in spending by overseas visitors delivered in 2018.
“This year is chilly in Tokyo which is very different from last year and we don’t know what will happen next year we have made arrangements so that events can be shifted if the weather requires it.”
The IOC John Coates at the same press conference in Tokyo on Tuesday confirmed that spectators will be able to take their own water into venues and that there will be adequate shade when queuing for events.
