Should planners go ahead with the upsurge, the kitty for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Set to be theatrical at the new National Stadium, will stand at ¥16.5 billion (£121 million/$159.7 million/€131.6 million). A Board conference is due to be held tomorrow with the budget increase predictable to be on the agenda.
Kyodo News understands the move is being considered following the influence of the one-year postponement of Tokyo Olympic due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Rites were originally budgeted to cost ¥9.1 billion (£64 million/$82 million/€72 million) when the Japanese capital city revealed its plans during the bidding process.
This was then increased by nearly 43 per cent in February last year to take the total to around ¥13 billion (£91 million/$117 million/€103 million). Next the outbreak of coronavirus, the Olympics and Paralympics were suspended until 2021.
Organizers originally expected to spend around $13 billion (£9.7 billion/€10.8 billion) on staging the Games, but it was announced earlier this month that the postponement would cost $2.8 billion (£2 billion/€2.3 billion). The Tokyo City Government will allegedly pay $1.1 billion (£820 million/€900 million), with the Organizing Committee causal $1 billion (£740 million/€820 million).
The residual $700 million (£520 million/€575 million) would be enclosed by the Japanese Government. Tokyo Olympic and the International Olympic Committee have announced 50 cost-cutting events since the delay. Which they right will save $288 million (£217 million/€241 million).
Organizers are also looking to spend $960 million (£720 million/€801 million) on COVID-19 countermeasures as it bids to stage a successful Games. Mansai Nomura, the well-known Japanese kyogen actor, will be the principal executive creative director of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
Nomura is best known for his performances on stage and in the film as an actor but has also produced and directed performances both in Japan and overseas. Takashi Yamazaki is the decision-making original director for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Olympic 2020 Games.
Hiroshi will have the same part for the Paralympic Games. Sasaki supervised the Flag Handover Ceremony at the 2016 Olympic Games. Where Japan’s then Prime Minister Shinzō Abe seemed dressed as Mario of Nintendo console game celebrity. The Olympics are now owing to take place from July 23 to August 8, shadowed by the Paralympics from August 24 to September 5.
