The Tokyo Metropolitan Government plans to set up facilities to show live footage of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics and Paralympics next year in Tokyo, as well as in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, which were hit by Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.

The venues will include Ueno Park in Tokyo’s Taito Ward, Showa Kinen Park in the Tokyo suburb of Tachikawa and parks in the three prefectures.
