EVENT LOCATIONS FOR THE 2020 TOKYO OLYMPIC GAMES


Where are the 2020 summer Olympic Games’ events happening? In Tokyo but not just in Tokyo.

The sites which will welcome the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games are mainly in two areas:

  • The “Heritage Zone” which brings together lots of iconic sites used during the 1964 Tokyo Games. In addition to passing on the legacy of the 1964 Games and the role they played in post-war Japan to a new generation, their reuse is part of the ecological effort of these Olympiads.

  • The “Tokyo Bay Zone” which brings together sites specifically designed for the 2020 Olympic Games. It stands as a model of innovative urban development and symbolises the city’s future. 

These two areas extend across the capital to form what the organisers call a "symbol of infinity". The athletes’ village is located at the intersection between the two areas, within the artificial islands in Tokyo Bay. This location was decided in order to facilitate the daily life of the athletes because 85% of the event sites will be located less than eight kilometers from the village.

Very near Tokyo and in the same prefecture, Chofu will host the modern Pentathlon events. There will also be badminton events at the Musashino Forest Sports Centre and rugby events will be held at the Ajinomoto Stadium, also known as the Tokyo Stadium.
The basketball events in the 2020 Games will take place in the Saitama Super Arena, around an hour's train ride from Tokyo.

Further afield, in the Kanagawa prefecture, sailing events are organised in Sagami Bay, on the small island of Enoshima. This venue is already an Olympic site as the sailing events were held here during the 1964 Summer Olympics.

East of Tokyo, Ichinomiya in the Chiba prefecture will host the surfing events of the 2020 Summer Games on Tsurigasaki Beach. It is already a popular spot for sports fans as this beach attracts nearly 600 000 surfers each year. In the same prefecture, the Makuhari Messe convention centre will host fencing, taekwondo and wrestling events.

The 2020 cycling events will also take place outside the capital with stops at the Izu Velodrome, Izu Mountain Bike Course and the Fuji Speedway racecourse, at the foot of Mount Fuji.
These exceptional places will allow you to combine sporting passion with cultural outings. The Izu Peninsula is full of treasures and on the way from Tokyo, you will go past the Ise shrine, one of the most important in the Shinto religion. And of course, Mount Fuji is a must see in Japan!
