Are they canceling the 2020 Olympics?

No, at least not for now. There is some speculation that this year’s games in Tokyo will be threatened by the coronavirus outbreak. Recently, the longest-serving member of the International Olympic Committee said that if the virus wasn’t in control by late May, a cancelation is a distinct possibility, but that right now, it’s business as usual.

A cancelation is more likely than a postponement or a location change because of the sheer scope of the Olympics, but keep in mind that heretofore, they’ve only been canceled because of World War II in 1940 (which, spookily enough, were also set to be in Tokyo).

Barring any further catastrophes, the Tokyo games are set to start July 24, 2020.

History of Japan

What was Japan's capital city in 784?

Nagaoka was the capital of Japan in 784. Ten years late it was moved to Heian, what is today Kyoto, where it remained until 1868.

The Imperial Court resided in Kyoto but after the rise of the shogun there was another capital with effective control. Heian was the effective capital and was moved to Kamakura and then Edo (Tokyo), with the last two being the shogun's capital.

What was the pros and cons of doing island hopping strategy in World War 2 Why didn't you just go straight for Tokyo?

island hopping allowed the US to establish a base of operations for our planes. once we controlled the local skies, we could establish safe harbors, supply depots for the ships, refueling centers, and local hospitals.

You must remember that the Pacific Fleet had been damaged at Pearl Harbor on 12/7/41 so running straight to Tokyo was not an option. (Although in early 1942 Colonel Dolittle made a daring raid on Tokyo with a squadron of B-17 aircraft ) So, ships were dear, and planes could not make it that far during this time.

Island hopping became the safest way to penetrate enemy territory, take it back into the hands of the Allies, and continue to work our way towards the Japanese homeland.

Is Tokyo over populated?

The population of the Tokyo Metropolitan area is said to be 12 or 13 million, with a population density of a whopping 5,900 / km2 but this number is pretty arbitrary, including only the people living inside the official, invisible borders Tokyo. The actual conurbation is much bigger, with a population of 34 to 35 million people all living side by side with no empty areas in between them. I think the term overpopulated involves a value judgment, and so I can only give my opinion on this as somebody who lives here. In Japan it is depopulation that is regarded as a social problem (people are deciding to have fewer children, later in their lives), but Tokyo continues to draw people in from other parts of the country because of the relative strength of the jobs market and the fact that many people prefer to live in a thriving metropolis. This puts enormous pressure on space and the transport infrastructure, so that to people from other cultures Tokyo homes (the vast majority are apartments) may appear very small, cramped and built too close to each other, and the trains are so crowded you literally need to force yourself in because the inside is full of commuters squeezed up against each other. Room sizes are measured in a unit called a 'tatami' which refers to the size of an average tatami mat - big enough for one adult to sleep on, and a typical room size is 6 tatami, with only two or three such rooms in a typical apartment. However, none of this is to say that there are 'too many' people living in Tokyo, just that there are a lot of people living here. Somehow Tokyo manages to absorb more and more people from the rest of the country, and gargantuan apartment buildings are being built all over town to accommodate the newcomers. The trains run pretty much on time, the water is clean and the sewage and rubbish collection systems all seem to function adequately, so overpopulated might not be the appropriate word to describe the situation here. 'Densely populated' it certainly is! Incidentally, the reason there are so many people crammed into Tokyo (and other Japanese cities) is very simple. Close in on Japan from space on Google Earth and it's obvious that virtually all the land in Japan is occupied by mountains too steep to build on, so the population will naturally tend to concentrate in the limited amount of flat land available, for example the Kanto plain (where Tokyo stands) and the Kansai area (Osaka and its surrounding area).
