Enter the next Olympics destination ...Tokyo

Sports fans now have to endure a whole three years and 11 months until the next one, and the venue will be Tokyo, capital city of Japan.
56 years after having organised the Olympic Games, the Japanese capital will be hosting a Summer edition for the second time, from 24 July to 9 August 2020. The Games in 1964 radically transformed the country. According to the organisers of the event in 2020, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad of the modern era will be “the most innovative ever organised, and will rest on three fundamental principles to transform the world: striving for your personal best (achieving your personal best); accepting one another (unity in diversity); and passing on a legacy for the future (connecting to tomorrow)”.

Aligning with the reforms advocated by Olympic Agenda 2020, the Tokyo Games will use as many existing competition venues as possible, namely those built for the Games in 1964, such as the prestigious Nippon Budokkan for judo, the Baji Koen Park for equestrian events, and the Yoyogi National Gymnasium for handball. The Tokyo National Stadium, where the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and athletics competitions will be staged, will be completely revamped and replaced by a new arena.

Marvellous, mad, amazing, astounding, hi-tech, historic, fun, friendly are all adjectives that people often use to describe Tokyo.  Tokyo is a tremendous choice as host city for the 2020 Olympic Games. Japan's vast capital is probably the most pulsating metropolis in the world. The locals are unfailingly polite and friendly, the food and drink is great and there are plenty of sights to take in when you're not enjoying the Olympic action.

Ladies and Gentlemen, aksu360 welcomes you to Tokyo 2020.....
