Hidden Dimensions of Olympic Games

Tokyo, from 1964 to 2020

Prof. Dr. Takashi Machimura, Hitotsubashi University, Tokyo (Japan), Graduate School of Social Sciences

Mega-events, such as Olympic games or EXPO, have basically a common difficulty which has to be resolved. How is the site for the very short-period event found in a crowded city center with various people and activities? Actors who try to host an event need spatial tactics and a narrative which give legitimacy to it. According to an analysis of the site location of facilities, the 1964 Games in Tokyo was made possible by using vast lands occupied previously by military facilities and imperial residences before the WWII. While Olympics was a kind of “national” ceremony, it was an event of “peace and democracy”. After the games, the sites became a multiple symbol of postwar “national” identity. National Stadium and athletic facilities were often seen as a place of public memory, representing the nation’s postwar “success”. At the same time, public spaces of Olympic origin offered major site for radical and liberal social movements, countercultural activities, and various civic initiatives in Tokyo. If compared with 1964, Olympic games become “smaller” in 2020 from both physical and symbolic points of view. People do not have a common dream and are not easily mobilized by “Olympic” narratives. Are there still any place imagination and tactics under such a “smaller” mega-event? The presentation will consider this question.
