Regardless, people will die of heatstroke in Tokyo during the Olympics. Other athletes, staff and volunteers, not to mention spectators and mom and pop at home who don't turn on the AC for whatever reason. There will be problems for ambulances navigating busy streets.

Japan will be ridiculed widely for their decision to go forward in July/August.

Given that I'm required to use my full name on some documents, many Japanese end up calling me by my middle name, assuming that I'm writing my name in Western fashion.

You know what's important news? Next summer, that of 2020, at the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, people will die of heatstroke. Athletes, staff, volunteers, spectators, AND mom and pop sitting at home without the AC on. Move this news forward with the goal of changing the Olympics to October when no one will die of heatstroke.

This summer, 23,000 Japanese people were hospitalized for heatstroke and they weren't even exerting themselves. They probably weren't gathered within hordes of people either. Several died.

If the Olympics were to be held in July or August, do you think there will be enough ambulances to rush (and I use that word loosely) people to hospitals to be treated for heatstroke? Even if there are added ambulances for the Olympics, where does that leave mom and pop?

Push your government leaders to push Japan's leaders to move the Olympics to October.

RE: Okinawa. If the US is booted from Okinawa, Japan might have to kiss its safety goodbye. Asia still lives in the 20th century and the occupation is nowhere near forgotten by the Korea's and China.
