Criticism and Details to Election

It was a very long way to decide holding Olympic in Tokyo 2020. First, some Japanese people criticeized on the project of Olympic. Main opinion is like that, “To be candidate for Olympic is too much cost, what the hell if we lose”. Shintaro Ishihara, a then governor of Tokyo strongly advanced the candidation. He insisted that Olympic will bring huge profit to Japan and Tokyo. Though this would be true, some Japanese oposite this idea, because Mr. Ishihara is known as a patoriot and macho politician. His argument sounded little bit violently for general citizen in Japan.
In March 11, 2011, big earthquake occured in Japan. East area of Japan got a immense damage of unprecedented tsunami. Furthermore, Fukushima nuclear power station meltdowned. People in Japan started to doubt a possibility of Olympic in 2020. To sum up, there are totally troubles for comittee of Tokyo Olympic candidation.
In September 7, 2013, at 125th IOC Session held in Buenos Aires. This means mainly 2020 Olympic host city election. At the final speach, Japanese popular a announcer Christel Takigawa made a magic for win. Her punch line “Omotenashi” that means a Japanese heart as host, was very impressive for every spectators and judgements. In the end, Tokyo won a dream for years by a large margin.

2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo

In the summer of 2020, Tokyo is holding olympic games. This is the biggest hope for Japanese and lots of topics are tipped on media even now.
Olympic games in Tokyo had been an ambition for years. Tokyo Olympic in 1964 is remenbered as a symbol of recovery from the tremendous damege of the lost of World War II. Japanese of these days are very encoraged watching Japanese players flourished and got medals.
After that, winter Olympic held in Sapporo and Nagano. Both of them succeeded and Japanese people had started to dreame a enthusiasm in Summer olympic again. Olympic games also bring economic growth. Japanese society in deflation for over 15 years hope a breakthrough for future. This is why winning in selection for Olympic in 2020 was the most pleasing news for every Japanese people.
Otherwise, some people demur at holding Tokyo Olympic for some reason. At the final speach of the selection, Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe said “Fukushima radioactive water woes are under control”. This sent shock waves through the Japanese public opinion. In fact, the situation in Fukushima is unpredictable now.
Then, what should we hope for Tokyo Olympic 2020? I thought about it and try to describe in this site. Please comment me and make Tokyo Olympic succeed together.
