The Tokyo Olympics were originally scheduled for July 24 to August 9, 2020, followed by the Paralympics from August 25 to September 6. They were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and rescheduled to July 23 to August 8, 2021 and August 24 to September 5, 2021, respectively.

The event staff announced in March that overseas spectators were banned from the event. Most of the events will have no domestic spectators either, due to the pandemic.
