I can see why Tokyo was picked for the location of the 2020 Olympics. There is a lot to see in a compact area. It also has great infrastructure including high speed trains and great highways.

I recently returned from Japan and was not surprised by many things the Japanese do. They have the longest average life spans in the world, 80.9 years for men and 87.7 years for woman. In the US it is 81 for women and 76 for men. Also Japanese can live 75 of those years disability free and fully healthy, according to the World Health Organization.
Lots of us wonder why. Contemporary Japan can be a stressful place. Its hyper-urban people work long hours, at 1,745 hours per worker in 012, suffer through a long and deadening commute, and can easily fret when a subway hold-up makes them just minutes late for meetings with their bosses.The pressure to perform is high, and failure is frowned upon.
