  1. Japan is seriously contaminated with radiation.

  2. they are planning to feed people with food from FUKUSHIMA. radioactive food. lol
    people will pay to consume radioactive food and get cancer.

  3. 東京太牛屄了,希望奧運盛大舉行,完美結束。Tokio es fantastica y bonita,me gusta mucho,gracias por tu exclente video.

  4. I am so glad with the inclusion of baseball and karate in these Games. These sports have been featured in the PanAmerican Games for a long time and they are really fun to watch.
    Skateboarding and surfing are also great sports to watch. It's a shame that the skateboard federations don't come to an agreement about the qualifying process, but theyy will eventually make it work.
    Not a big fan of sports climbing. In the latest YOG in Buenos Aires, it looked a bit… weird on Tv . Still, there's an audience and many people will enjoy it.

  5. I don't understand what people say
    Japan is trying to poison Olympic players with radioactive foods I guess they wanna announce that japan is a safe country from radiation which is not true I'm really concerned about their untrue advertising

  6. Wow surfing, I can’t wait to watch that! Also can someone explain why everyone are talking about radiation on here? 😂

  7. So not safe this olympic!!!! The lumber that was used in tokyo dome imagjne, rhey are all polluted by radioactive from fukushima

  8. I am afraid of nuclear radiation. A small amount, but I don't want to be exposed. 私は原子力放射能が怖い。少量だが露出なるの嫌だ。

  9. 2020 Tokyo Olympic will be terrible, horrible disaster because of Fukushima radioactivity. There will be lots of victims Occur and many people are killed by radioactive contamination.
    IOC must take all the responsibility of this disaster. So many people will blame to IOC. If you don't wan to die, Do NOT go to Tokyo Olympic.

  10. The Tokyo Olympics radiological hazards have exceeded certain levels.

    Abe has vowed to use the Tokyo Olympics as an opportunity for Fukushima revival.
    In addition, he vowed to feed Fukushima agricultural products to athletes around the world.
    This is the same as the brutality of 731 units in Japan during World War II.

    The Olympics are a sacred festival of sports.
    By using the Olympics, they are hiding the atomic bombings of Fukushima, which is still in the midst of a catastrophe, and putting millions of people at risk.
    In particular, human rights abuses against Fukushima residents are serious.
    Still, people are moving to Fukushima, where radiation levels are well above the standard. This is a violation of human rights and atrocities.
    The Japanese government immediately stops all this brutality and apologizes to Fukushima residents and the international sports community !!!

  11. It's not surprising anymore to see how people just believe what the media says without questioning it.

    I can easily see foreigners plan to visit Japan next year in the comments section.

    They don't even know that baseball and softball games will be held in Fukushima. https://youtu.be/5MrwW9PfU30
    This is absolutely insane!

  12. Wow!! Are you serious, NBC? No info about radiation? You should make it an issue, and force the Japan government and/or I.O.C to solve it. That's your job as media.

  13. I just realized somthing for us Americans the time thing is really a factor the events would literally be in the early morning hours like 2AM I hope its not a big factor

  14. 하ㄴ굮인들 모오듀우 바아사아능 관련 대엣글에 조하유 뉼려셔 대엣글 사앙위권예 뽀네쟈~~

  15. Korean desire is less than garbage.
    that's good opportunity that the world can recognize that Korea is crazy country
    and people think that people wouldn't want to get involved with Koreans.
    The world cut Korea dead.
    in fact, Korea who respect German is hated from German.
    The world hate Korea.
    https://i.imgur.com/kYPQoMA.jpg
    Korea only do boycott.if Koreans don't come Japan, Japan keep clean.that's excellent.

  16. despite hating japan, 7 million koreans come to Japan every year.
    koreans brain is crazy.
    koreans brain would rather infect with radioactive contamination. haha
    Don't come to JAPAN.

  17. I don't know why the Olympics games with dozens of games are stacked in just 15 days.
    I think it is better that the Olympics games take place in a longer time so that everyone can benefit. Japan is benefiting from tourism and TV broadcasting for a whole month and fans are watching more sports because many sports compete simultaneously because of the tight duration of the Olympics.

  18. To emphasize the safety of Fukushima, Japan has raised the radiation exposure limit from 1 mSv (milli-sievert: unit of radioactivity) to 20 mSv. Rather than resolving the problem of radioactive contamination, it seems to be trying to raise awareness that it is lower than the exposure limit by changing standards. Japan currently has virtually no disposal of Fukushima nuclear waste. 97% of the accidentally melted nuclear fuel is still stored inside the nuclear power plant, where radioactive contaminated water is exponentially flowing daily as groundwater seeps into it. Recently, the international environmental group Greenpeace pointed out that Japan plans to keep it in the Pacific. Australian nuclear expert Helen Keldicott said, "The Japanese government wants to reassure them that the radiation levels are low, but it's all a lie."

  19. BOYCOTT the radiation games,its not safe.
    And no I'm not a Korean I'm a newzealander ! Your meltdowns are killing the Pacific Ocean! And your food is slowly killing young and old globally. The Japanese people need to stand together and take over their corrupt government.

  20. RISING SUN FLAG IS CRIMINAL MASSACRE FLAG. DANGEROUS RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL IN TOKYO AREA. THINK TWICE BEFORE VISITING TOKYO . FUKUSHIMA DISASTER.

  21. CORRUPTED "IOC" ALLOWS "RISING SUN FLAG" MEANS, SAME AS "NAZI" FLAG. BOYCOTT TOKYO OLYMPIC 2020…. ALSO, THINK TWICE BEFORE VISIT TOKYO. FUKUSHIMA RADIOACTIVE.

  22. WTH is every single comments are all about Fukushima?? I’ve been to Japan in 2012,2015,2016 & 2018 and I don’t see any threats to radiation. I went there last year in June and clearly everything looked perfectly safe and sound.

  23. The Rising Sun Flag is the military flag of Japan. It was used as the war flag of the Imperial Japanese Army and the ensign of the Imperial Japanese Navy until the end of World War II. The flag was heavily used by the Japanese in the conquest and the occupation of East Asia, it is seen as offensive in countries which were victims of Japanese colonialism, largely because of the war crimes perpetrated by the Japanese military. This flag has similar meaning with Nazi flag. You should ban this flag in all Olympic games.

  24. Tow things you have to know about Japan
    One is that The Rising Sun Flag currently using is like Nazi Flag of Germany in the imperialism period.
    You should ban this flag in all Olympic games.
    The other is that radioactive pollution is not cleaned up and is not controlled properly until now.
    You should bring your own food and air when you visit Japan.

  25. The Rising Sun Flag

    It is the same as Haken Kreuz of Nazi Germany.

    The reason why it should not be used in the Olympics, a symbol of peace, is sufficient.

    Do not tolerate the flags used by war criminals in the Olympics, a symbol of peace.

  26. if nuclear explosion at chernobyl was this bad how come NO ONE is mentioning anything about Japan where explosion happened few years back? AND, they want OLYMPICS to be held 2020? WHAT are they hiding AND how come NO ONE is mentioning about it??? THEY are even rumors Japanese Government are throwing off their nuclear waste back into the ocean. Please, spread this news before Japanese start to have massive genocide.

  27. Nope, Tokyo heat and humidity in July and August is worse than New Orleans. Source: Myself from living there for five years. It is the worst humidity I've ever experienced. I think a lot of people won't be expecting it and I feel for the athletes that will be competing outdoors.

  28. Geeze all of these nasty comments from Koreans. For other foreigners curious about possibly attending but are getting scared off by all this radiation talk: I lived in Tokyo for several years over the time that the incident occurred. Fukushima is a number of hours away from Tokyo. It is not that close. I also never at any point in time felt like I was in any kind of danger while living there. Tokyo has some of the highest food standards in the world and is safe. Seriously, don't worry that much. The health concern at these games should be the heat, not radiation.

  29. JAPANESE GOVERNMENT POSSIBILITY WILL FEED "RADIOACTIVE DETECTED FOOD TO FOREIGNERS AND OLYMPIANS. FUKUSHIMA DISASTER. WE HOPE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT WILL SOLVE BEFORE OLYMPIC.

  30. Can the legacy of the 1964 Olympics be repeated in 2020? That was a different era and in a different time. I don't believe it will have the same transformative effect as it did then. This is really the Prime Minister's games.

    To show that Japan has fully recovered from the 2011 tsunami disaster. But really if that was the case. There would have been more effort put into those hardest stricken areas.

    But at the same time I still believe in the Olympic movement. I may not always agree with it's politics. But I also believe that a world without it would be a much worse place to be.

    We already have enough hatred, misunderstanding, discrimination and frankly indifference in the world as it is. The games is one of the few rare opportunities that we stop killing each other.

    For 2 weeks in the spirit of competition in sport. Anyone else has a better idea how we can do that in a way. Which can bring the world together for a short time then be my guest. Otherwise quit the stupid protests and support your athletes!!

  31. Pepping for the Olympics? Lol

    They are disguising their radioactive polluted land as tourist destination.

    Beware!

  32. Watch out for radiation!! Japanese in important positions or positions of responsibility moved their families out of Japan. It's like dumping the sinking boat.Chairman Katsumata Tsunehisa → Served as an Outside Director of Japan's Nuclear Power Plant (Currently living abroad with family) President of Shimizu Masataka → Parachute as an outside director of Fuji Oil Co., Ltd. (Currently living abroad with family) Vice President, Takeru Saru → Parachute due to external audit of Arabian Petroleum (Currently living abroad with family) Managing Director, Miyamoto Fumiaki Parachute as President of Nippon Field Engineering (Currently living abroad with family) Shigeru Kimura Director → Vice President of Electric Business Association (Currently living abroad with family) Fujiwara Makio Auditorium Reappointed as an outside auditor of the related company KANDENKO (Currently living abroad with family)

  33. watch out the radiation. we are really close from Japan and we prohibited all food from japan. i recommend you search the google "radiation in Japan" this olympic is really dangerous we're not gonna go.

  34. 70% of Japanese territory is contaminated with deadly Fukushima radiation. Japan is FINISHED. NEVER go to Japan if you don't want to risk your life. The lying dictator Abe Shinzo and his LDP gangster and hiding all the dangers of Fukushima nuclear disaster. That's why Japan bribed 2 million USD to host the Olympics. Don't trust Japanese liars.

  35. We need to add Tumbling and Double mini to the Olympics because the Trampoline is included and it’s the same sport, TNT! It would also be super exciting and sick!

  36. People outside would better listen to what Koreans and Austrellians and few of Japanese say and try to examine evironmental issues together. Because they did more research and had more exp than you did. When something is gonna happen, it will be too late.

  37. So many hateful comments from Koreans…

    Poor koreans, full of hate…

    Koreans will probably die earlier than Japanese people.

    Korea is more dangerous with very high PM2.5 pollution and an epidemic of voyeurism.

    Plz boycott tokyo olympics.

    goodbye Koreans…

  38. Tokyo Olympic! It's a CONTEST OF DEATH FASTER .Fukushima is still leaking nuclear coolant liquid The Government of Japan Faked nuclear alarm increased 5times of standards safety rular. DO not Send players to Tokyo or Fucushima. Its very danger

  39. Swim in the unclear liquids polluted soil 700times of Safty data by nuclear. Its NOT UNDER CONTROLLED. STUPID ABE .
