Road to Tokyo
In 2020, Tokyo will host the Summer Olympic Games, and the city hopes to use its moment in the international spotlight to dazzle the world with its state-of-the-art facilities, technological innovations, impeccable hospitality, and Japan’s triumphant recovery from the devastating 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster.
This interactive website introduces students to the modern city of Tokyo through its geography and major attractions and sites. In addition, SPICE has developed lessons and resources that explore Tokyo—and Japan broadly—from a range of angles, including its rich history and culture, position in the global economy, contributions to the fields of technology and transportation, and the intricacies of its political system.
