Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games are about two years away, but the local organising committee seems to be ahead of time or at least in control of things as the time gradually ticks. They invited media representatives from around the world to attend the first official world press briefing ahead of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games on the 4th of September 2018.
The press briefing was followed the next day by a media tour of facilities being constructed for the games. The highlight was the Olympic Village. This facility will host athletes, officials and trainers during the games.
The games village will have 21 flat-type buildings with 18,000 beds for the Olympics and 8,000 for the Paralympics. “Along with the 21 buildings for accommodation, we’ll have the Main Dining where the athletes have meals and Village Plaza, a shopping centre, in the area,” said Yukihiro Nakata, a PR person for the Olympic Village. “The process is 40 per cent completed. The accommodation towers will be ready in December 2019, and temporary facilities are set to be ready by the spring of 2020.” After the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, two new 50-floor buildings will be developed and sold to the public. As the time ticks and the world waits with baited breath for the games to begin,
Japan is putting on hands on deck to make sure every facility is ready and as at when due for the 2020 summer Olympic and Paralympic games to begin.
Below is a video report of the level of construction as at the time of my visit.
