Japan's preparations for the Olympic Games 2020
In 2020, the Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo. Japan, a country with a unique ancient culture, certainly will cook for guests something grand and original, but also, of course, will surprise travelers technical achievements. But if the life of the Japanese themselves will change in the upcoming Olympic Games and how they relate to this event? This - in our review.
Japanese manufacturers of beverages in the past year has tested for buyers unexpected news - colorless soda "Coca-Cola", as well as tea and coffee colorless. View from this production was weird, but tastes no different from "color" of the original. Japanese citizens have apprehended news almost indifferently - no hype about transparent coffee shops were not.
However, analysts say, that it was just a trial balloon, and such a miracle drink, as well as other products of famous brands, presented in an unusual form - a surprise, was not prepared for the Japanese. He must impress visitors from foreign countries who come to the Olympic Games. It is assumed that the Europeans will precisely, unlike the Japanese experienced such products will delight.
And, of course, foreign tourists will surely enjoy traditional Japanese sauce - if not colorless, but with Olympic symbols.
Ecology around the
In preparation for the Olympics, the Japanese Cobiralas show the world that they are very eco-friendly people and care about the environment. It is known that the Japanese are very serious about sorting rubbish and discarded glass containers separately in special tanks.
Now, glass, sorted in the homes of Tokyo and processed at enterprises, make the building blocks for the construction of Olympic facilities. In addition, the city appeared clean taxi, which we also now tell you.
Miracle taxis and robots
Chic taxi brand "Toyota", the issue of which is timed to the upcoming Olympics, has already appeared on the streets of Tokyo. This so-called car with artificial intelligence class "comfort" with facilities for physically challenged passengers - tourists with disabilities, and, of course, members of the Paralympic Games. New taxis are very spacious (can be put into a wheelchair), they do not have rear-view mirrors (instead of them - screens), the cabin is no less than six airbags, and they are filled with either a gas or run on electricity.
Cab drivers - young (no older than 30-40 years), knowledge of foreign languages (especially - in English), that for ordinary Japanese taxi drivers are rare. In addition, the taxi drivers have been trained in first aid in case a passenger becomes ill.
It is assumed that a taxi will be the main means of transportation Olympic guests as public transport in Tokyo is not working late. The cost of travel by taxi from the airport to the city center is approximately 40 thousand. yen.
By the beginning of the Olympic city Yuriko Koike mayor promised to completely remove from Tokyo all illegal taxis ( "bomb" in the Japanese capital, as a rule, Chinese and Koreans). By the way, the success of the Olympics - the question for her vital, because she tipped as prime minister, and the reality of this vision depends including how it will manifest itself during the Olympics 2020.
Also, the Olympics organizers plan to put minibuses which will transport guests to the Olympic facilities of the adjacent hotels. By the way, in hotels, at airports and in the area of the competition is planned to actively use robots that will act as informants and interpreters.
Training for tourists salvation
As you know, in Japan often earthquakes occur, and occur periodically, and other natural disasters. Already, the authorities organized a training group of all those who plan to work at the Olympics. Future volunteers are taught to act in emergency situations - such as the evacuation of spectators from the stadium in the event of an earthquake, how to coordinate them and avoid panic and casualties. And, of course, volunteers should be able to help guests with first aid.
Japan - a country that has not quite prepared for terrorist acts, but at the time of the Olympic Games can not exclude provocations. Especially the Japanese authorities are afraid of terrorists from North Korea. In this regard, during the Olympic Games 2020 Tokyo and other major cities are literally crammed with cameras with the latest Face Detection system.
Such equipment will be not just at the entrance to the Olympic venues, but just on the streets. In other words, the person whose face is recorded in an electronic database as unreliable (eg, being including in the international search), there will also be identified and arrested.
By the way, the Tokyo government now periodically arrange for the citizens of a large-scale training in the fight against terrorism. For example, in exercises organized around Ueno Park City Hall, fire and military, took 300 people. Who came to the event to tell and show how to proceed, if the terrorists sprayed throughout the chemicals, or if the explosives found in the park.
without unnecessary emotions
Interestingly, if the Russians for the Olympics in Sochi was a real national holiday, the Japanese people for the upcoming events are almost indifferent. No euphoria about the Olympics there. And many local school children at all claim that follow the course of the Olympic Games they have no time, because the time they are made to coincide with the educational process, which for them is more important than such events.
Yes, and buying souvenirs with Olympic symbols for pragmatic Japanese, too, is not an end in itself. Coins, plastic containers and other items with the logo of Olympic Games 2020 will interest most likely only foreign guests.
