  • Tokyo's Olympic Stadium will host the opening World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting series on May 9

In response to a question from a lawmaker about Reuters' reporting on the subject, Hashimoto said it was the responsibility of the Japanese Olympic Committee and the Tokyo metropolitan government to explain the bid's activities. Tokyo set a one-day record for new infections on Friday with 570.

Although Japan has handled the pandemic better than most countries, cases have been surging recently with about 2,000 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in a country of 125 million.

The event will test three essential elements: the field of play, the use of technology, and operations staff.

Hidemasa Nakamura, the games delivery officer, said none of the test events will allow fans from overseas, although some events will permit an unspecified number of fans from Japan.

"No, we will not have spectators from overseas", said Nakamura.

In the past month, Japan has already held several sports events that allowed fan attendance. This week, some 19,000 people watched the final game of the Japan Series of professional baseball in a 38,000-seat stadium in Fukuoka.

Some fans are expected at the events, but it is unclear if many fans from overseas will be allowed to attend.

"We are. thinking about what kind of Tokyo 2020 Games we are going to have in terms of spectators", Mori told reporters, adding that government policy on the matter "will probably be decided in the spring".

The Olympics organizers will formally decide the increased budget for the Games as early as mid-December after communicating with the Japanese government and the host city Tokyo, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported, citing unnamed Olympic sources.

Tokyo 2020 said test events would be held at Yoyogi National Stadium for wheelchair rugby, the Olympic Stadium for Para-athletics and the Sapporo Odori Park for the marathon, but the dates have not yet been confirmed.

The volleyball competitions of the Olympic Games will begin on July 24, the day after the Opening Ceremony, and run until the very last day of the Games on August 8, just hours before the Closing Ceremony.

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach, who was in Tokyo this month to talk up the games, acknowledged much of the planning hinges around the availability of vaccines and rapid testing. But he cautioned they are not "silver bullets".
