Good harmonies on the Japanese national anthem

One of the best versions I've heard

Very impressive! Kimigayo is a different, but always very dignified and majestic anthem - if I remember correctly, the oldest or one of the oldest national anthems in the world. And that Japanese flag projection combined with that was super nice, too!

And now vibrant and young Tokyo! Oh, and Hello Kitty... erm, nice! ;) No, I like the fun part. They seem to remember their own 2020 bid presentation with that enthusiastic nice lady.

Haha, and there is the Prime Minister acting as Super Mario! How cool is that? Or how cringeworthy? ;) However, I like that they are poking fun at themselves!

I'm sitting in front of my TV with dropped jaw. This is REALLY cool and new! If they keep up with this for their opening ceremony in 2020, then we're in for a super cool and impressive opening!

I never was too fond of Asia (nothing racist, I just wasn't really interested in going on vacation there) - but now I want to LIVE in Tokyo! ;) If it's anything like that presentation in real life, it must be the coolest city in the world! ;)

As of now, this is the best closing ceremony yet IMO (Because Pac-Man and Mario were in it :P)
