The History of Sports in Japan Vol. 2 (Olympics)
In 1912, two Japanese athletes joined Stockholm Olympics. It was the first time for Japanese people to join the Olympics and Japan got the first medal at Antwerp Olympics.
Having Olympics in Japan was a long-time wish for Japanese people.
It had been decided that Japan had Olympics in Tokyo in 1940, but due to the China-Japan war, it got cancelled.
After the second world war, Japan got another chance to hold Olympics in Tokyo and finally we did have Olympic games in 1964.
