  2. He has to be sober in front of the public. Japanese media was caring about reactions of foreign media.A lots of people said it was very boring,dull and cheap. Not so.Too late.

  4. Generally, chrysanthemums are flowers to serve in the coffin for the dead in funeral so they are not suitable for bouquets. It's like saying "eternal adieu" to athletes. A big chrysanthemum looks great though.
  5. NHK uploaded full video,but I am not sure it's available in your region. https://sports.nhk.or.jp/olympic/highlights/content/1feb8382-e3e5-4498-9bac-e250086c102e/

  8. The good 1-godzilla Matsui and Shigeo Nagashima 2-Naomi 3-drone globe and singers of "Imagine"but not so much for the song itself. The very very bad 1-50 pictograms. 2-50 pictograms. 3-50 pictograms. Disappointed so much for this.

  14. I think those pebbles and rocks are deeply related to Japan's nature worship,animism and life and death.Generally pebbles and rocks of riverside(especially rivers in the mountain)are natural object that people's(dead or alive)soul,spirit and invisible feelings dwell.Perhaps those stones mean souls of the victims of an earthquake in Tohoku,they go up high in the sky and then to heaven...well just in my interpretation.Otherwise,they are simply stones of fence of samurai castle. At "24 of the video What I don't understand most is white mummy costumes.It's like Thriller or Butoh.
