Whether you’ve already booked your flights or are still toying with the idea of heading to Japan for the 2020 Summer Olympics, Events 365 is here to tell you everything you need about the event and how to make the most of this once in a lifetime experience.


First things first, the 2020 Summer Olympics will run from July 24 – August 9, and after a two-week break, the Paralympics will take place from August 25 –  September 6. Over 300 events across 33 sports events will be held in 9 venues across Tokyo, with most events happening in two main areas of Tokyo: the Heritage Zone and the Tokyo Bay Zone. 


The Heritage Zone will hold events in upgraded buildings that were used in the 1964 Olympics, while the newly developed Tokyo Bay Zone will be used as a “model for innovative urban development.” Soccer will be held outside of Tokyo at the Sapporo Dome,  located on the northern island of Hokkaido, and Baseball will also be held outside Tokyo at the Fukushima Zuma Baseball Stadium in Fukushima.
