Very wise of you. For a start, if you examine the plans carefully, it become apparent that the running tracks in both designs have inside lanes 400 metres long !

I went to Tokyo today and here are some photos.

Very happy to enter the field . Some kissed on the grass and I heard many people never knew the smell of the grass is so fresh. I'll be able to enter the New stadium in 2019 if I apply by the

Tokyo 2020 main stadium to be completely smoke-free: Japan Sport Council

The new national stadium being planned for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics is to be completely smoke-free, with no smoking rooms, it was learned from the Japan Sport Council (JSC) on March 30.

Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare policy on anti-secondhand smoke allows for smoking rooms at baseball stadiums and other sports facilities used for entertainment purposes. While the new national stadium will also be considered as a multi-purpose facility, the JSC is opting not to set up smoking rooms, saying they would "go against the times."

According to the JSC, dignitaries might be allowed to smoke in VIP rooms, but the design documents for the stadium do not include any smoking rooms for regular visitors. Even hallways and outdoor areas will be designated "no smoking."

The new national stadium is to be leased to a private operator after the Olympics and Paralympics, but they will be required to maintain the no-smoking policy. However, there will not be rules preventing event organizers who use the stadium from setting up temporary outdoor smoking areas.

Plans for the Ariake Arena in Koto Ward -- also being built by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government for the Tokyo Games -- also may not have smoking rooms, though the metropolitan government says it has not yet deliberated the specifics. The Ariake Arena will also be used for multiple purposes after 2020, such as concerts.

In 2010, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) agreed with the World Health Organization to promote a smokeless Olympics. According to the health ministry, from 2008 onward, every Olympic host site except for Tokyo has had anti-secondhand smoke regulations carrying punishments for violators in place.

While Japan's Olympic venues meet the IOC's standards, the health ministry's health department says, "There is a need for places like restaurants to protect the rights of non-smokers. When it comes to this, Japan's measures are among the worst in the world."

Just read on the JSC website that the following photos show what the original landscaping was going to look like but after some sort of review, it will be like the latter photos.

Compensation sought over death of stadium builder

The family of a construction worker who killed himself in March has filed for compensation, saying his excessive workload caused him to suffer depression.

The family's lawyer, Hiroshi Kawahito, says the 23-year-old man worked for a subcontractor of a project to build the main stadium of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

The subcontractor was doing ground improvement work for the new national stadium. The man, a first-year employee, was overseeing quality control.

Kawahito says the man put in about 200 hours of overtime a month just before he committed suicide.

The lawyer says the man apparently felt pressured over the need to finish the work by a deadline after a review of the construction plan caused a delay. He says that caused the man's depression.

His parents applied for workers' compensation with labor authorities last week, claiming his overwork led to his death.

The parents released a comment, saying they want no one to die from overwork like their son. They say companies should work to protect the lives and health of their workers.

Kawahito says he also plans to ask the Tokyo Games organizing committee and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to improve working conditions. The man's employer says the company is aware of a lack of proper labor management that caused his long overtime. The company adds that it will review its work regulations.

Well, the original plan was to have it ready before the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Though that's not gonna happen anymore. Remember whenever asian countries are hosting these things they love to have the work finished long before the deadline (Beijing had everything ready by January 2008 if i'm correct)

You're correct. Even Pyeongchang is done and ready to go for these Games already. Much better than Torino and Sochi in that regard, it alleviates a lot of headaches.

It also ensures no apocalyptic headlines.
