According to Japan’s Foreign Ministry, it was the first call between the two since Suga, who succeeded Shinzō Abe after he resigned due to ill health, took office a week ago. Suga received a majority in both houses to confirm his new position as leader of the country, having previously been elected leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, which Abe was previously in charge of.

Bach and Suga reaffirmed their commitment to making the Games “safe and secure” for both athletes and spectators, according to Kyodo News. The IOC and the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee have agreed to a simplifying of the Games due to the financial impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the call, Bach congratulated Suga on taking office and stated that the Tokyo Games would be a “historic” event that could bring hope to the Japanese people, according to the Foreign Ministry. Suga then assured Bach, saying that his Government was working hard to keep the COVID-19 virus under control and discussing ways to stop the pandemic affecting the Games with the Organizing Committee.

“Bach said he hoped to visit Japan when it was safe to do so, with the call ending with both sides agreeing that a “strong message” needed to be sent to athletes across the world with the hosting of the Games.”

The IOC President is hoping to speak to Suga in person at the end of October. Suga also met with Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike today for the first time since taking office and the two agreed to cooperate regarding the Games, pushed back to 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

We share the view that collaboration between the central government and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government will contribute to the national attention, Koike told reporters after the meeting. The Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to take place from July 23 to August 8, 2021, with the Paralympics following shortly after from August 24 to September 5.

Tokyo Olympics chief expecting IOC approval of 50 to 60 items to simplify Olympics

Around “50 to 60” items aimed at simplifying the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games are set to be approved in the coming weeks, according to Organizing Committee chief executive Toshirō Mutō. Speaking after the latest meeting of the Tokyo Olympic Executive Board today, Mutō said he expects an agreement on the items that will be reached following discussions with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Coordination Commission on September 24 and 25.

The measures – which target reducing costs and ensuring the safety of athletes and spectators – including the number of people involved in the Games, infrastructure, and Ceremonies, Mutō added. The Tokyo Olympic chief admitted the exact cost of the items would not be available until December.

“We imagine to have an agreement on the substances, but the ballpark number on the reduction won’t be obtainable immediately because we need to thoroughly inspect the numbers,” Mutō supposed.

Mutō also said not to expect a decision on if or how spectators will be able to attend the Olympics and Paralympics, pushed back to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, by the end of the year. Organizers have repeatedly stressed that they are including crowds in their planning for the rescheduled Games, but leading officials from both the IOC and Tokyo Olympic have acknowledged holding events without spectators is a possibility. How fans can attend the Games is set to be the main subject of a meeting of a panel assessing coronavirus countermeasures in November.

“When it comes to the specific numbers and how much of the percentage of total capacity should be allowed, I can’t say whether that will be decided by December,” Mutō said.

We need to keep a close eye on the situation with the COVID-19 spread. We shouldn’t make a decision right before Games time, but definitely, we should observe the situation thoroughly. The first set of COVID-19 countermeasures are set to be revealed by the end of the year, a timeline reiterated by IOC vice-president and Tokyo Olympic Coordination Commission chairman John Coates today.

Border controls, COVID-19 countermeasures at venues, plans for dealing with infected people, pre-Games training camps, rules for public transport, and the necessity of an isolation period upon entry into Japan are all being discussed.

“Our decision at the moment is to go ahead,” Coates, who recently claimed Tokyo Olympic will take place next year irrespective of the coronavirus pandemic, supposed.

What we wait for is to decide what counter-measures we need to go ahead with, to proceed depending on what stage COVID is at. The extent of the ceremonies, the extent of the crowd participation, any necessary quarantine when they arrive in Japan.  All of those things. And by the time we get to the end of the year, we’ll assess what counter-measures we’ll need to apply.

The museum features replicas of the cauldron of each of the three Olympic Games Japan has hosted – Tokyo 1964, Sapporo 1972 and Nagano 1998. Yamashita has now confirmed the Flame will be placed on display.

“I would be happy if as many people as possible could feel hope through the exhibition of the torch,” Yamashita said.

The Olympic Flame will be kept inside a lantern, with visitors required to book in advance to visit the museum. The museum is expected to restrict the number of entrants to 60 people per 30 minutes, with the aim of reducing the risk of COVID-19 infections.

The Olympic Flame, placed in an undisclosed location in Japan back in April, is expected to be on display from September 1. This followed the Flame being removed from public display as one of the measures designed to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The decision coincided with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe declaring a state of emergency. Reports have also suggested the Flame could be moved to other locations prior to the Torch Relay next year for the rescheduled Olympic Games. The original Torch Relay schedule is expected to be maintained.

The Olympics were postponed to next year just two days before the Torch Relay was due to start in Fukushima in March. Should Tokyo Olympic organizers proceed with their original plans, the Torch Relay would last for 121 days.

It would begin on March 25 at the J-Village National Football Training Centre in Fukushima Prefecture. The rescheduled Olympics are due to take place until August 8 next year, followed by the Paralympics from August 24 to September 5.

“The preparations are making excellent progress, I can truthfully say I have never seen an Olympic city as prepared as Tokyo with one year to go before the Olympic Games,” said IOC President Bach.

The executive members of the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo Organizing Committee, along with guests including Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike, were among those who gathered at Tokyo International Forum to celebrate the milestone and reflect on the progress made in the planning of the 2020 Games.

Construction for five out of 10 national arenas for the 2020 Games has been completed, the organizers said, with construction for the last one — the Tokyo Aquatics Center — set to be completed by February 2020. Starting this month, test events have been launched to prepare for each sport.

“The Olympics brings the world together and it affords equal opportunities to all, and that is what sports are all about,” said Abe during a kickoff ceremony Wednesday afternoon, adding that the success of the Tokyo 2020 Games won’t be realized if it doesn’t lead to the recovery of the disaster areas devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011.

“We suffered enormous damage,” Abe said. “We want to communicate our message of gratitude to those who supported us and continue to do so. We are still in the process of rebuilding.”

Bach says, “One year from now, Olympic 2020 it’s self in Japan will make history. The eyes of the world will be in Japan. Your rich history and traditions, your cutting-edge innovation, your culture of hospitality and, of course, your love and passion for the sport.”

Tokyo 2020 also unveiled the Olympic medal designs on Wednesday.

The 2020 Olympic Games will begin with the July 24 opening ceremony and end with the closing ceremony on Aug. 9, among which 11,090 athletes will participate for 339 gold medals across 33 sports including five additional selections: baseball and softball, karate, skateboarding, sport climbing, and surfing. During the Paralympic Games — to be held from Aug. 25 to Sept. 6 — 4,400 athletes will compete for 540 medals across 22 sports including, for the first time, taekwondo and badminton.

The Olympic torch relay will start March 26 from J-Village in Fukushima Prefecture and will travel through all of the country’s 47 prefectures during the course of 121 days.

More than 3.2 million tickets for the events were sold in a lottery during the first stage of domestic sales in June, after more than 7.5 million people registered for the lottery. Due to the unprecedented interest in ticket sales, Tokyo 2020 said there may be an additional lottery to be held in August for Japanese residents who did not win any tickets in the first lottery round. A first-come-first-served basis sale for those living in Japan will commence in autumn. For worldwide audiences, Tokyo 2020 will commence the third wave of ticket sales on a first-come-first-served basis in spring 2020.

About 7.8 million tickets are available for the 2020 games, the majority of which is expected to go to the domestic population.

Tokyo Olympic 2020 announced Monday that Emperor Naruhito will adopt the role of Honorary Patron to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, following the organizing committee’s formal request through the national government. The nomination will extend from Wednesday until the closing day of the Paralympic Games.

“In the fragile times we are living in, the Olympic Games are the only event that brings the entire world together in a peaceful competition,” IOC President Bach said during a progress report on the current state of preparations for the 2020 Games.

“These are the Olympic Games for the world, organized by Japan and by an all-star all-Japan team,” Bach said. “With this Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, you will see all of Japan united, not only for the games, not only by the games but also through the games and for the entire Japanese society at large.”
