My Tokyo: 1964 was a gigantic success for one of the losers of the war


En gigantic success was the tale that the Japanese government wanted out with and that it had invested a lot of money in getting out. It was largely successful, and the reconstruction that the Japanese people had accomplished in the previous decade was truly impressive. There were undeniably many positive things to tell. In those years, the everyday life of Japanese families became easier and more comfortable in diverse areas.

But the big staged show certainly had its costs, too. The Tokyo government had serious economic hangovers after the Games, which Olympic organizers almost always have. It is not free to build new light rail lines, new raised motorways and impressive sports facilities.

At the same time, there were several crises and serious challenges that pressed on, which were cynically postponed until after the games. Everyone was busy making the Olympics a success, and everything that was not urgent and that could be postponed at all was postponed. It was precisely the health of the Prime Minister.
