The Japanese government has decided this week that the once delayed 2020 Olympics that are set to start in late July 2021 will be without overseas spectators.,

,It has been unclear whether the Olympics will go forward due to the Japanese public opinion being negative against holding them at all.

,I guess that this means that Japan is closed to foreign visitors until sometime in 2022.,The country has been slow at starting vaccinating its citizens, and there is some general hesitance towards vaccinations in Japan.,We purchased tickets to the Olympics just in case that foreign spectators would be allowed in, but that, unfortunately, won’t be the case.,I guess that there is a chance that the Olympics will be canceled altogether if a very virulent strain of Covid-19 surfaces between now and July.,
