Summer Games Venues

For the 2020 Summer Games, Tokyo’s event venues have been divided into two zones: The Heritage Zone, where some of the original venues from the 1964 Summer Games are located; and the Tokyo Bay Zone, which includes many of the brand new venues as well as most of the water sports venues. When the zones are circled along the borders, the resulting shape is the infinity symbol, which represents the limitless potential of the athletes and the host city. The Athletes’ Village is appropriately located where the two zones meet. Particularly impressive is the fact that 28 of the venues are within five miles of the centrally-located Olympic Village, making things very convenient for anyone attending the Summer Games.

Heritage Zone

The Heritage Zone encompasses Tokyo’s city center and main business area. As mentioned earlier, this zone contains iconic venues from the 1964 Summer Games including Yoyogi National Stadium and Nippon Budokan. In addition, the site of the Tokyo’s former National Stadium (which was demolished in 2015) will be home to the incredible new Olympic Stadium which is currently under construction. Scheduled for completion in 2019, this incredible stadium will be the hub of the excitement in 2020, housing the opening and closing ceremonies, athletics events, and the football final. Both the Park Hyatt Tokyo and the Hilton Tokyo are located inside the Heritage Zone.

Tokyo Bay Zone

Located just southeast of the city center, the Tokyo Bay Zone includes plenty of innovative infrastructure that will host some of the most exciting events at these games, including aquatics, gymnastics, and beach volleyball. Comprised partially of artificial islands, this zone includes nearly twice as many venues as the Heritage Zone as well as the International Broadcast Center. Offering a balance of modern architecture and relaxing green space, the area is expected to continue be a hub of development even after the completion of these Games.
