    Good for Japan!
    I wonder what their opening ceremony will be like.

    I imagine that the opening ceremony will see some J-pop girl band and maybe some Hatsune Miku.

    I'm thinking there may be like a special olympics anime short. Japan might not like Otaku's and stuff, but lets face it, technology, anime and J-pop are what Japan is known for in other countries.

    The same way England had the Queen and James Bond. were tea and crumpets involved? I didn't watch it. (patriotic, I know)

    Good. Can't see how poverty-stricken Spain that has over 20% of the population jobless at the moment could've hosted the Olympics. Same goes for the currently politically unstable Turkey.

    Looking at Wikipedia, Tokyo is the first city to host Olympics 3 times now?

    Oh my bad, didn't notice 1908 Olympics were apparently re-located to London instead of Rome.

    Still, 7 years from now... it'll be a very different time in our lives for a lot of us. For me, my sisters will be mommies, I'll be out of school and hopefully have a job, Zora Domain will be frozen, parents will retire, new Presidency, etc etc.

    I'm not sure if Maple Story or Southperry would even hold out for that long. Who knows what will be popular in Japan at that point in time.

    Japanese professor pushes for Hide and Seek at the Olympics

    Was going to make a new thread but since there's already a Japan Olympics thread I may as well not bother xD

    Tokyo? I can only imagine the traffic jams.

    large events like these is crap tier for traffic, god tier for restaurant/tourist shop owners. I'm already having early fears on traffic in California for Superbowl L(50) just because of the number significance, and that the bay area is generally a high tourist spot.(as well as new stadium) and this game doesnt play until 2016(same year as Rio's summer Olympics, which is going to be extremely big for Brazil as a whole receiving much televised attention)
