quote of the day

We hope to build a place that presents the appeal of Japanese cuisine to the Olympic athletes, as well as the tourists coming to watch the Olympic Games.

It will include a restaurant area and is within walking distance of the athletes’ village and other venues for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. (Yomiuri Shimbun)

I hope people don't come all the way to Tokyo to stand in line for 4 hours to eat sushi and miss the games.

Given how Japan normally does "mega tourist complexex" i suspect it will offer a pretty lame and not good quality Japanese cuisine to the Olympic athletes and tourists. and yes the queues will be horrific.
