How many times has Japan hosted the Olympics?

Tokyo and Sapporo became the first non-Western cities to host the Olympics when they were selected as the host cities for the 1940 Summer and Winter Olympics, respectively.

However, the Japanese government lost its right to host the Games when war broke out between Japan and China in 1937.

Again, Japan was given the opportunity to host the Olympics in 1964. From October 10 to 24, the Olympics were held in Japan for the first time ever.

Sapporo, a city in Japan’s Hokkaido Prefecture, held the Winter Olympics in 1972. Sapporo hosted the 1972 Winter Olympics, which took place from February 3-13.

It was held in Nagano, the capital and largest city of Nagano Prefecture, from February 7 to 22.

Tokyo has been awarded the opportunity to host the 2020 Summer Olympics, which will be Japan’s first Summer Olympics in 56 years. However, due to the raging COVID-19 pandemic, which is currently wreaking havoc over the world, it has been postponed until 2021.

The Tokyo Olympic Games will end on August 8.

A technology passionate, looking forward to sharing his insights and verdicts on the ‘Technology-driven world’ of today.
