Olympics tickets online
General tickets for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will go on sale as soon as April.
The Games’ organising committee wants to promote ticket sales in tandem with the Golden Week holiday period and heightening the mood for the event.
The committee plans to initially sell tickets only on the internet.
As a result of the Crown Prince’s accession to the throne this year, the Golden Week holiday period will last 10 days from April 27 to May 6, the longest stretch of holidays since the National Holidays Law took effect in 1948.
The committee believes that people who want to buy tickets will have plenty of time to access the internet during that period.
