The fan areas have been canceled to view them and thus there is less opportunity to enjoy them, even if the Games are held here. And I think the next ones will not be happening in a long time.Mikio WatanukiI think this is how they should be celebrated.

If I were an athlete, I imagine that I could not give 100% in my performance without an audience there.Shimicchi“Vaccination is starting now (in Japan) and they should control the public more. If they do not reduce the number of spectators, when the Games are over, the same thing that happened with the Go To campaign last year, in September, which spread infections throughout Japan could repeat itself.
