Sapporo 2030: Give them an offer they can't refuse with no bids involved

Whilst I'd prefer Sapporo with the talk of Nagano hosting at least the sliding events was there ever any move for Nagano to bid in their own right - surely their legacy from 1998 is more intact than those of Sapporo from 50 years ago?

Nagano prefecture has a population of about 2 million.  Hokkaido is well over 5 million.  So that region is likely better suited to put forth a bid.  And with Nagano less than 2 hours by bullet train from Tokyo, if they were going to focus the mountain venues there, they might as well have the indoor venues at Tokyo.

Is that a ludicrous idea? They've got enough indoor venues, and if Milan and Cortina can work together then a similar Tokyo-Nagano setup doesn't sound crazy. Especially when you throw bullet trains into the equation.
