In recent years, with the spread of economic proliferation, there has been a boom in sports around the world.

Therefore, the Japanese government looks forward to the hosting of the 2020 Olympic Games and promotes the Olympic Games under the slogan “Discover Tomorrow”, so that the international community could see international participation and sports technological innovation of Japan. Taking “Olympic Games brings inspiration, could change individuals and society” as the action policy, to create a comfortable, convenient, efficient, and safe living area, show the soft power and hard power of Japan, let the Olympics affect Japan not only limited to the period of the Olympic Games, but also change citizens’ life.
