Most sports are played in Tokyo within a radius of eight kilometers around the Olympic Village. There is dhe “Heritage Zone”, where, among other things, the Olympic Stadium, the riding course, the handball and the table tennis hall are located.

In Tokyo, at the time of the Games from mid-July to the end of August, it is usually very humid with temperatures averaging 31 degrees and an average humidity of 73 to 76 percent. Therefore, some competitions, including the marathon and football, are held in Sapporo. The city is located in the north of Japan, about 800 kilometers from Tokyo.
