Tokyo Olympic Village opens ahead of start of the Games on July 23

10:06 | 17/07/2021

(Construction) - With the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics coming up on July 23rd, the Olympic Village in Chuo-ku, Tokyo where the athletes will stay during the games, was inaugurated on the 13th.

The village consists of 21 residential buildings with 14 to 18 floors, with a total of 3,850 housing units. It will host about 18,000 people during the Olympics and 8,000 people during the Paralympics. To prevent the spread of COVID 19, the athletes will only be allowed to enter the village five days before the start of the games, and will be asked to leave two days after the games. After the Paralympics, the residential buildings will be renovated into condominiums and become part of the "Olympic Legacy”.

Tokyo Olympic Village opens ahead of start of the Games on July 23.

The athletes' village was built by 11 companies, including Mitsui Fudosan Residential, which was selected by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. In addition to the residential buildings, the village will also have temporary facilities such as the main dining hall and the village plaza for the duration of the Games.

To serve the athletes of Paralympics, the design of the facility emphasizes barrier-free accessibility, making the accommodation building stress-free for wheelchair users and the visually impaired. The building was designed with as few steps as possible, and a slope was installed at the entrance. The exterior corridor is about 150 centimeters wide, about 30 centimeters wider than a typical corridor, so that wheelchairs can pass each other.

As a countermeasure against the disease, a 24-hour clinic for febrile patinets has been set up separately from the general clinic. Measures have also been taken to reduce the number of seats in the main dining hall. The village will close on August 11, three days after the closing ceremony of the Olympics. It is scheduled to open again on August 17, one week before the start of the Paralympics, and close on September 8, three days after the closing ceremony. (2021/07/14)
