Tokyo was promised glory and riches Japanese leaders, the capital of Japan, promised glory and glory when they won the 2020 Summer Olympics. Work and economy will grow. The crowd gathers support. Japan’s international fame will grow.
The Olympics are scheduled to end on Sunday, a year later, as planned, which is far from the script the organizer explained when he won the 2013 Olympics. The coronavirus forced the organizers to keep the game in the anti-coronavirus bubble, but even the spiritual side of the Tokyo uprising excluded all economics.
Tokyo was promised glory and riches Instead, the city has become just a ship of mega-events that claimed a lot but had little reward. Even after spending billions of dollars, Tokyo felt the game like any other city. As a TV event.
Makoto Inoue has borrowed a lot of money to open a Mexican restaurant in 2018 behind the new Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. We hope this place will attract a crowd of Olympic spectators and tourists in the coming years.
In the afternoon before the Olympics, customers gathered in his small basement for the first time since the epidemic began. However, at night, coronavirus restrictions forced the door to close during the opening ceremony.
“I saw fireworks,” said Inoue (43).
The Olympics have given the feeling of increasing instability instead of economic recovery. Already incurred by scandals and costing billions of dollars, the game was against the will of most people in Japan who considered it an unacceptable risk to public health. The organizer’s claim to retain them reinforces the sense that national leaders are not accountable to people.
After enduring so much, many Japanese people wonder what the fuss is.
“People’s trust is fragile,” said Nobuko Kobayashi, a Japanese military partner at Ernst & Young, a Tokyo-based consulting firm, who regularly writes about national social issues.
The turmoil surrounding the game has strengthened “the desire for new systems and new ways of working,” he said.
Due to bad decisions and wrong moves, the top executives of the game have resigned one by one. Japan is currently facing the worst outbreak of the coronavirus, as it appears to be using the game as a license to relax its vigilance.
Voters can punish the tenacity of Japanese leaders. Japan’s unpopular Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s party was able to take power in the face of weak opposition in the parliamentary elections scheduled for the end of October. Still, that type can be weak enough, and Sugar’s fate is an open question.
Opinions about the tournament have softened a little since the two weeks of operation, and blend in with the illusion of winning the highest medal in Japanese history. Government leaders danced to the question of how the Olympics would benefit and provided bromide on how the success of athletes in the face of adversity could set an example in the fight against the world’s epidemics.
The biggest impetus for the tournament came from the epidemic that forced organizers to postpone the event for a year, resulting in balloon costs, financial losses and political turmoil. Total cost unknown: In the absence of spectators alone, economic gains would probably have fallen by $ 3.3 billion, Tokyo think tank Nomura Research Institute estimated before the tournament began.
