Update by the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games:

A total of 43 venues—eight new permanent venues, 25 existing sites and 10 temporary venues—will be used at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. All but one of the new permanent venues are already complete and the overall preparation of all venues is progressing on schedule. Last month, the new Olympic Stadium – a state-of-the-art venue that will serve generations of athletes and spectators to come – was officially opened to the public and on New Year’s Day hosted its first official sporting competition.

The residential buildings of the Athletes’ Village were completed in December 2019. Members of the media will get their first look at the Village Plaza, to be constructed completely from timber donated from 63 local municipalities in all 47 prefectures, next week. After the Games have ended, the Plaza will be dismantled and the timber returned to the donor municipalities to be reused in local projects, connecting communities throughout Japan to the legacy of the Tokyo Games.
