Tokyo Olympics 2020: Five Things You Need To Know

Tokyo Olympics 2020 is just a mere three years away giving travelers and sports fans ample time to prepare to head to the land of the rising sun. Rio Olympics 2016 was a special endeavor that -- aside from athletic drama and victories -- was truly memorable in showcasing Rio's culture and potential as an Olympics host. Tokyo Olympics 2020 could be as special as Rio due to these five developments.

Japan intends to make it easy for travelers to land and be acquainted with Tokyo. According to Magical China, the Japanese government intends to "ease airspace restrictions" in major airports Haneda and Narita Airport. It must be because Japan takes pride as the only Asian country to host the Olympics twice.

Tokyo Olympics officials intend to broadcast the games in 2020 with a "Super HI-Vision" broadcast or a transmission that guarantees an 8K Ultra HD experience. In conjunction with Sony, the officials guarantee that viewers in hotels or their own residences can enjoy the same visual experience as with those watching the games in stadiums -- another reason to head to the city and book in advance.

Japan has also declared several famous Japanese Anime characters including the iconic "Sailor Moon" and "Dragon Ball Z's" "Son Goku" alongside others to be their Olympic Brand Ambassadors. Olympic shirts and other merchandise will feature these characters prominently -- and they are about to go on sale.

According to Stuff New Zealand, baseball, softball and karate would be returning to the Olympics for 2020 -- the last they were included was in 2008. Other new Olympic sports including "X-Games" level athleticism such as surfing, skateboarding and sports climbing Tokyo Olympic officials would include to "appeal to a younger generation of athletes."

Lastly, last December -- in a bid to improve its networks before the influx of travelers and Olympics-goers in 2020 -- Japan's Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry announced a plan to establish 30,000 free Wi-Fi access points for the entire country. The Wi-Fi access points are also intended to help support existing educational and corporate infrastructures.
