Olympia 2021 – time shift from Japan and Germany: German time
Many fans wonder when they can watch the Olympic Games live on free TV or stream. That depends crucially on the time zones or the time difference / time difference between Japan and Germany. Tokyo is in the Japan Standard Time (JST) time zone and is seven hours ahead of Germany in the summer.
In Japan there is also no time change between summer and winter – but there is in Germany. For example, if it is 12 noon in summer, it is already 7 p.m. in Tokyo (+7 hours).

Summer Olympics 2021: Olympics or Olympics – what’s the difference?

Olympia 2021: The mascots Miraitowa and Someity
The futuristic mascots of the Olympic Games go by the names Miraitowa (blue) and Someity (pink). Miraitowa represents the upcoming Olympics and has the ability to teleport from place to place super-fast. The name of the blue character goes back to the Japanese word “mirai” for future. The kind-hearted Someity stands for the Paralympics (“towa” = eternity), loves nature and is reminiscent of the Japanese cherry blossom. She has telekinetic skills and can talk to stones and the wind. Schoolchildren in Japan had a say in the design of the figures with the big googly eyes. (AZ)
