Tokyo 2020 has unveiled details of 29 live site venues in nine prefectures across Japan.
All are located in areas hosting Tokyo 2020 competitive events and in the Tohoku and Kumamoto regions, which were hit by natural disasters in 2011 and 2016.
Operated in conjunction with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and other organisations, the live sites will welcome visitors and spectators from around the world during next year's Olympic and Paralympic Games.
They will be able to view live broadcasts of competition events on huge screens and participate in a variety of events, thereby allowing them to share in the overall excitement, according to the Organising Committee.
The live sites will also feature "exciting" stage events and provide visitors with the chance to join in Olympic and Paralympic sports activities themselves.
Eleven of the 29 sites are based in Tokyo and were announced last April.
They are located at Yoyogi Park, Inokashira Park, Ikebukuro West Gate Park, Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, a multi-purpose space in Morioka Park, JR Morioka Station Waterfall Plaza, Kotodai Park, Tsurugajo Castle, Aquamarine Park, Kumamoto-jo Hall and in front of Takanawa Gateway Station.
Other authorities with multiple locations are Kanagawa prefecture – Katase Higashihama Beach and Odawara Castle Park – and Yokohama city – New Yokohama City Hall and Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium.
Among the further 14 locations are a two-chome area in Odori Park in Sapporo city, KAISEIZAN Outdoor Concert Theater in Fukushima prefecture, Ibaraki Prefecture Hall, Sonic City in Saitama prefecture, Asaka City Multipurpose Gymnasium, Sayama City Center and Makuhari Seaside Park in Chiba prefecture.
