Let the Games Begin

After a one-year delay due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the 2020 Summer Olympic Games have begun in Tokyo, Japan! Just over 11,000 athletes from 205 countries are converging upon the city to compete in 33 different sports, with millions of viewers around the globe.

While live spectator attendance and travel to Japan have been extremely limited, the Games always generate a lot of interest in their hosts, and the 2020 Summer Games are no exception. Living Abroad’s International Relocation Center (IRC) provides a wealth of information about Tokyo, as well as Japan overall.  Here’s a three minute video introduction to the country — it’s one of many you’ll find in our reports:

Living Abroad’s IRC reports will also have you covered for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, China, the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in Paris, France, the 2026 Winter Olympic Games in Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, the 2028 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, USA, and the 2032 Summer Olympic Games in Brisbane, Australia. (The host city for the 2030 Winter Olympic Games will be announced in Mumbai, India in 2023.)
