There are six venues to be used for the association football tournament of the 2020 Summer Olympics. Any reason how Osaka (Japan's second-largest city) is excluded? I can understand including Sendai's Miyagi Stadium, because Sendai was seriously affected by a 2011 earthquake. If the Nagai Stadium in Osaka was added to the list, it would go up to 7 venues. Would 7 football venues be too much for the Olympics?

Also, the equestrian venue of the 1964 Sumer Olympics was actually in Karuizawa, at Nagano, which also hosted the curling events of the 1998 Winter Olympics.

The equestrian events were held in several places. Some in Nagano, and some in Setagaya-ku, where the Baji Koen park is located.

According to insidethegames.biz, the president of Tokyo 2020, Yoshirō Mori (a former Prime Minister of Japan), has revealed that he is suffering from lung cancer, but claims "the prognosis is good"; the cancer will not affect him carrying out his duties in the build-up to the Olympics and Paralympics. Mori underwent successful surgery last week to have an affected part of his lung removed.

It is the vision of Japanese creative lab PARTY, who worked alongside Muji and Nikken to bring the project to life. As well as looking pretty darn cool, the colour-coded tracks direct travellers through the airport easily and comfortably – blue track for departures, red for arrivals.

It didn't take long for the National Stadium to be pulled down.

Plans for a new Olympic sailing marina next to Tokyo Gate Bridge in Tokyo Bay have been abandoned, as part of ongoing changes to the original Tokyo 2020 blueprint intended to shave costs by US$1 billion.

* The actual location for the Tokyo 2020 sailing competitions remains uncertain, with a number of venues, both near and further away from Tokyo, under consideration.
* The originally-planned Wakasu Olympic Marina, priced in the bid book at $105 million (£69 million/€97 million), would in fact have entailed construction of a breakwater costing more than $400 million (£263 million/€368 million).
* The requirement could have been removed by switching the venue inland to an existing sailing centre not far from Wakasu.
* Live coverage of sailing events entails the use of helicopters which would require clearance from authorities at Haneda Airport. It is still not clear if permission can be obtained.

OLYMPIC STADIUM - CHANGES

OLYMPIC STADIUM

So it seems Tokyo has scrapped the retractable seating and postoped building the retractable roof until after 2020, and that 15k of the seats will be temporary.

So they're actually building a 65k athletics stadium, in essence.

Was the old stadium that has been torn down used for many sporting events in the years before it's demise or was it a white elephant?

Like was it the home ground for a soccer team.

Tokyo 2020 Leaders Unveil New Round of Venue Changes, but Bach Wants National Stadium Issue Resolved

IOC President Thomas Bach today urged Japanese leaders to resolve issues surrounding the New National Stadium, as officials unveil further venue changes expected to bring overall savings to US$1.7 billion (£1.1 billion/€1.5 bllion).

Yoshirō Mori, Tokyo 2020 President, and Toshirō Mutō, the chief executive, set out a new series of venue changes affecting several sports:

* Badminton is moved to Musashino Forest Sports Centre
* Water polo is moved to Tatsumi International Swimming Centre
* Fencing, taekwondo or wrestling are being moved from the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition centre to the Makuhari Messe centre.
* Sailing is moved from the Enoshima Yacht Harbour (the 1964 Olympics sailing venue)
* Rugby sevens is moved from the New National Stadium to Tokyo Stadium (at the west of the city).

Olympic Games: 8 Sports chosen to make a shortlist of possible extra sports

Quote:
The eight shortlisted federations are: baseball/softball, bowling, karate, roller sports, sport climbing, squash, surfing and wushu.

The 18 to miss out are: air sports, american football, bowls, bridge, chess, dancesport, floorball, flying disc, korfball, netball, orienteering, polo, racquetball, snooker, sumo, tug of war, underwater sports and water skiing.

All eight federations will now progress to a second stage of the application process, which will include the submission of further details by 22 July before briefings to organisers due to take place in Tokyo on 7 and 8 August.

As part of reforms initiated by International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach last year, Games hosts have the chance to bring in one or more sports popular in their country to boost ratings and attract greater sponsorship.

How come Tokyo will not have a permanent 250-m velodrome, especially for track cycling events during the 2020 Olympics?
