Tokyo Will Host The 2020 Olympics


Tokyo is the winner! The Japanese city will host the 2020 Olympics. They last hosted the games in 1964, which was seen as a coming out party for a country recovering from war and reinventing itself as a peaceful economic powerhouse. Almost three years since the 2011 tsunami, which left their nation in turmoil, the city will rise once again. 

“We offer dynamism and excitement on one side, and harmony and peace on the other. Tokyo will be the great host of a wonderful party,” said Christel Takigawa, a Japanese television anchor chosen to underline the message that, like London, Tokyo will be able to put on a show in the heart of the city.
