2020 Olympics


Aug 6, 2018
So what does everyone think the impact of the Olympics are going to be on Tokyo and Japan in general? Personally, I would love to go back right now, but I fear there's too much construction, not enough lodging (see AirBnB fiasco) and its only going to get worse. Afterwards, there will be a glut of empty space (hopefully) for cheap (hopefully) and lots of new stuff to gawk at.... What do you see the main pros and cons being here with respect to travel.

Besides the lodging mess, I wouldn't go anywhere near Tokyo during that time. Can you imagine morning rush on the yamanote or chuo/sobu during? o_O
