First Look at the Tokyo Olympic Village Plaza

The plaza of the Tokyo Games athletes’ village has been unveiled ahead of the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics.

The area will be used for welcoming ceremonies for arriving delegations. It will have facilities such as a bank, a post office and coffee shops. The plaza is scheduled to be completed in April. The structure is made of about 40,000 pieces of lumber donated from 63 local governments nationwide.
