Tokyo hosts 2020 Olympic Games. And Japan is spending a large amount of money for preparing to host the Olympic. Some critics in Japan are arguing that the Olympic makes Japanese economy better. But is this argument sure? Many problems have already arisen on the Olympic. What kind of effect does the Olympic have?

In this lecture, firstly, from the standpoint of historical perspectives, I would like to examine the several Olympic Games in Japan, which are from the phantom summer and winter Olympic games in 1940 to 1998 Nagano. I would like to point out that  "Peace Festival" has political nature from this analysis. And then, I would like to show some problems on the 2020 Olympics and discuss the near future of Japan.
