Foreign brotherhood army,

Why is the message for spectators in English?

Because, unlike the Japanese Olympic committee or the IOC which can’t make a decision in under two years, the venues probably had these posters printed up two years ago (in anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics) and now, realizing no foreign visitors are coming, slapped them up to empty space in their warehouse.

Its sunny and 35C and you can't take frozen drink pouches or a water bottle with more than 750ml or water. Yet more evidence that we are all just little people to be bossed around by this stupid charade we are paying for ourselves.

"A taste check will be required before entry"

What? Does this mean some old geezer will be taking a mouthful of your under 750 ml water bottle before you're allowed in? Ewwwww....

"A taste check will be required before entry"

If the security guard tasting your drink doesn't break into a smile, look at the bottle in his hand, and shout "oishiiiiiiii!", then it's not going in.

For all of the overseas spectators coming.

Wasn't there a ban on all foreigners from foreign countries? Last I remember, only people with Japanese citizenship were allowed to return from abroad.
