A lot of money wasted to find out they wasted a lot of money.

Tokyo should never have been awarded the Olympics in the first place... Everything is very far from "being under control"... Abe is too full of himself - he just wants to show off but seems to forget about his own people - especially those still in "temporary lodgings"...

ALL UNDER CONTROL THEN?? Another lie way up there with the check is in the post! Sorry the $100 I owe you I could not send as I already sealed the envelope....

Give me 1 million dollar and I'll buy 5000 plastic chairs and excavate a part of the lake

So far my credits go to Koike.... She's been quite newly elected and has picked up on a lot of issues right away. The Olympics, the fish market, and she's been stepping up against the party that prolonged Japan's economic crisis to 26 years by now, I foresee her being the first female prime minister of Japan, and finally start to get things going again here.

-newslover. Fish market and olympics are simple problems that wont affect us on the long run. Being a prime minister is thousand imes more difficult.

What does "gain the public's UNDERSTANDING" really mean? Gain their BRAINWASHING? This phrase is so nebulous as to be meaningless. Essential to Japanese politics, I guess.

Please oh please can anyone make sense of the numbers/budgets in this article................

Koike san, your intentions are good, just GO for the least costly & MAKE them HONOUR their BUDGETS!

This 4 & SEVEN times over budget are so beyond criminal, do a TRUMP & sue them! CLEARLY you have winnable cases.......sadly a LOT of them!

Olympic bid : Mori group won for Tokyo about six years ago..Abe and Koike were not involved six years ago.
