The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

The 18th Summer Olympic Games was held in Tokyo in 1964. Operation of Shinkansen or bullet train, Tokyo monorail, Tokyo Metropolitan express highways were narrowly in time for the opening ceremony.  Some  first -class hotels also opened right before the Olympics started. Although these structures and buildings including the events’ gyms are still valuable and useful as tangible legacies, intangible legacies should be highly regarded too. They have some aspects but the most important point is that the Japanese have taken sports activities on their daily lives more and more since then. I believe that this legacy resulted in success of bringing the 2020 Olympics to Tokyo.
