    Tokyo Awarded 2020 Summer Olympics



    This will be following the 2018 South Korean Winter Olympics. I'm excited, but it will be interesting what the road to the games will be like, considering how Japan is struggling with population decline and a less transparent government during the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster. But overall Japan is a very stable, safe, and prosperous place so I am not worried. Thoughts?

    It will be very well organized. I look forward to attending the 2020 Olympics.

    Exciting! You're right, it will probably be organized because they already have all the infrastructure.

    I thought it might be Istanbul, but with all the turmoil in that region I can understand (one reason) why not.

    Not only that but the Japanese are some of the most disciplined and organized people I have ever seen. Not to mention the neatest too. As an insight into their national character, I remember a story from the 1998 World Cup in France: the Japanese crowd were cheering their team in one of their matches. After the game was over, the crowd picked up every bit of confetti that they threw to keep the stadium clean. Their national pride is at stake at the Olympics and that means a lot to these people. I expect them to pull out all the stops to ensure a good Olympic Games.
