A Tokyo 2020 Live Site photographed during the Rio Games 2016
The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) have finalised its selection of 30 Live Site venues in nine prefectures across Japan, including a new venue in Hamamatsu city, Shizuoka prefecture.
The Live Sites are an integral part of Tokyo 2020's plan to bring the excitement of the Tokyo 2020 Games to local communities. This will allow everyone the chance to be closer to the Games and be part of a shared experience.
All are located in areas hosting Tokyo 2020 competitive events and in the Tohoku and Kumamoto regions, which were hit by natural disasters in 2011 and 2016.
A memorable summer
At the live sites, visitors can enjoy live broadcasts of the Olympic and Paralympic Games on huge screens, watch exciting on-stage performances, and participate in various events. This unique atmosphere in live site venues will surely create a memorable Tokyo 2020 Games for everyone.
Operated in conjunction with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and other organisations, the Live Sites will welcome visitors and spectators from around the world allowing them to join in the Tokyo 2020 Games.
A new logo
The official Live Site logo was unveiled today with a design that embodies the Live Sites' sense of unity with the Games venues.
The Live sites will be set up and decorated in such a way that visitors will be able to really feel the atmosphere of the games the minute they set foot inside them.
