The Tokyo tournament cost 1,423.8 billion yen, of which 55%, or 783.4 billion yen, was invested in a huge public fund, and the people's pros and cons for holding it in Korona-ka are divided. I kept being asked.
On the other hand, there were also results such as simplification of the tournament, know-how of management in Korona-ka, and the attention to the symbiotic society by the Paralympics.
