Show your support for Japan!
On the September 7 2013, the next Host City of the 2020 Olympic Games will be chosen from either Istanbul (Turkey), Tokyo (Japan) or Madrid (Spain).

As a foreigner from the UK living in Japan for 14 years, I think that Tokyo should be chosen as the host city for the following reasons.

Rich in tradition while being advanced in technology
You can gain a truly incredible experience from a single visit - ask *anybody* who has come over to Japan.

Enchanting country and culture
Japan has managed to maintain traditional culture even through modern times which can be experienced by visiting the varied amount of places of interest in Japan. Take a look at the following link to see just a small example of what awaits you.

Japanese culture is a uniting culture
There is no other culture that unites people from all over the world and this is proven by the amount of Japan related (Anime, fashion, food, manga, cosplay etc) events that are held worldwide. 
Holding the 2020 olympics in Tokyo will further unite people together from around the world and thats what the olympics should be about.

Trains, busses run frequently and on time - you can set your watch by the train arrival times! When you are over for the olympic games - you can rest assured that the transportation system will ensure that you wont waste time waiting around.
Tokyo is also filled with facilities for the disabled too.

Non tipping country
Japan is a non tipping culture which means you can spend less on tips and more on shopping and food! 

Japan is ranked as the safest city in the world. If you are going to travel anywhere for the olympics then it may as well be the safest place on earth!

Tokyo is filled with not only Japanese food but also a huge variety of international cuisine too. Take a look at the following link to see an example of what awaits you.

More Japan
I know there are many folks around the world who love Japan - if you are one of them then show your support by signing this petition - it does not cost anything to help.

With the 2020 Olympics being held in Japan, you will be able to see more coverage of the land that you love on TV too!

2013年9月7日に2020年オリンピックの開催地がイスタンブール(トルコ)、東京(日本)、マドリード(スペイン)から選定されます。   日本に14年間住んでいたイギリス出身の外人である僕の観点からすれば、東京は下記の理由から開催地に選ばれるべきだと思います。   豊かな伝統文化を持ちながら科学技術も発達している 一度来日するだけでも素敵な体験が出来ます。日本に訪れた事がある人ならば誰もがそう答えます。  


日本程世界中の人々を一体化させる文化はありません。これは世界各地で開催されている日本関連のイベント(アニメ、ファッション、料理、マンガ、コスプレ、etc)からも伺えます。 2020年オリンピックが東京で開催されれば、オリンピックの本来の目的である世界中の人々の一体化が更に促進されます。  

日本の交通機関は電車やバスの本数が多く、時計の時間合わせにも使えるくらい正確! オリンピックで日本に滞在している間は時間を無駄にする心配はまずありません。 東京にはバリアフリー化された施設も沢山あります。
