Fifty-six years ago, on October 10, 1964, Tokyo hosted its very first Olympics. It was just a few years after WW2 where it served as a turning point for Japan.

Now, fifty-six years later, Japan will host the Olympics for the fourth time around. But due to the corona crisis, this was rescheduled for the summer of 2021.

And guess what?!
