What hasn’t as of yet been given such wide-ranging coverage in either the local or international press so far is the variety of opportunities that the Tokyo Olympiad offer for foreigners both in and outside Japan to further their careers as they help with the Olympic effort.
Once you arrive you have to travel up the longest escalator I’ve seen in Japan to get to the base. There are also stairs but I wouldn’t advise it. Especially if you’ve just cycled up with a three-year-old.
It is now almost 1 year since Tokyo was named the host for the 2020 Olympic Games. For the first time since 1964, the “Greatest Show on Earth” will return to the Japanese capital. Unfortunately, as I have mentioned previously, not everyone in Japan was happy about it.
