Have the started construction on the stadium yet? Better hurry it up.

Cancel the whole damn thing, say I, as well as every other bloated international sports tournament.

Sports are a rip off business and too much revolves around them.

oh for frack sake hurry up, procrastinating on everything will just make it harder to be ready on time and cost blow outs are going to be massive. Its this same procrastinating by J business and j gov which has been a big factor in why the J economy has gone nowhere in the last 20+ years

There was a longer article in the Japanese news about how there was no way they would allow a public vote on it.

A word to the "wise": the construction for the Rio 2016 Olympics is so far behind and billions over budget that it may not happen after all.

Just modernize as many sites as possible that were used in the '64 games and still call it the Tokyo Games. Maybe nobody remembers those games and the facilities that remain unused today. Example, the rowing event site in Osaka. Maybe it is better to just try to stimulate the economy by destroying the past and moving on to the future.
