Cheer at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics
July to September 2021
Yes, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games are happening this year, and yes, they are still called Tokyo 2020. This will be an event like no other: overseas ticket holders are still welcome and might even be able to skip quarantine; however, Covid-19 safety protocols will be put in place, possibly including no shouting while watching the Games. The Olympics will still have the usual 33 competitions and 339 events throughout Tokyo, along with some brand new ones: sport climbing, surfing, skateboarding and karate.
The fun will kick off with the torch relay on March 25 2021 in Fukushima. The torch will travel to all 47 prefectures and will land in Tokyo on July 9 2021 for a 15-day journey through the capital.
