Rio passes Olympic flag to Tokyo with ‘Super Abe’ during closing ceremony

Tokyo took center stage as Rio de Janeiro handed over the Olympic flag to the 2020 host city at a rain-lashed but joyous closing ceremony for the Rio Games on Sunday.

Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike, wearing a light-colored kimono, took the flag from Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes and International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach, before Tokyo 2020 organizers gave an eight-minute presentation that saw Prime Minister Shinzo Abe emerge from a large green pipe in homage to Nintendo character Mario.

“Super Mario was amazing,” Otavio Camargo, a Brazilian volunteer watching the show at a wet and sparsely attended Maracana Stadium, told The Japan Times.

“The prime minister coming up the pipe was very nice. I think it was the best part of the whole ceremony.”

Tokyo gave its presentation, produced by the stage directors for pop group Perfume, among others, as Rio prepared to bring the curtain down on the first Olympic Games ever to be held in South America.

Abe and Mario appeared in a video segment on the big screens before the prime minister emerged in person from the pipe, briefly dressed like the video game character and holding a red ball.

A gymnastics team from Aomori University then performed with computer-generated imagery to showcase Japan’s technology to the world, before Abe handed the ball to two-time double Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer Kosuke Kitajima to loud cheers from the crowd.

“Mario is a part of our childhood,” said Camargo. “He’s very popular in Brazil. Everyone likes him. I think the whole ceremony was good but that was amazing.”

Rio bid farewell to an Olympic Games that has widely been hailed as a success despite misgivings over the city’s high crime rate and concern at how a country laden with economic problems can afford to pay the estimated $12 billion bill.

Bach declared the games closed with a nod to the political situation that has seen Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff suspended amid impeachment proceedings, and thanked the 10-athlete refugee team that competed at Rio 2016 under the Olympic flag.

“During these last 16 days, a united Brazil entertained the world with unforgettable and emotional moments of pure happiness despite the rather difficult surrounding environment,” said Bach.

“You have many reasons to be happy. These Olympic Games demonstrated that diversity is a priceless asset. The Rio Games granted us the opportunity to celebrate diversity. Our Olympic values created unity within this diversity.

“Thank you, dear refugee athletes. You have inspired us with your talent and human spirit. You are a symbol of hope to the millions of refugees in the world. We will continue to stay at your side after these Olympic Games.”

The closing ceremony paid tribute to Brazil’s arts and music, featuring samba, drumming and a carnival atmosphere that held up despite strong winds and rain battering the partially covered stadium.

The Brazilian national anthem was sung by 27 children forming the stars on a giant rendering of the country’s flag, and the Olympic flame was extinguished as singer and actress Mariene de Castro performed in front of the eco-conscious cauldron.

“Throughout our bid to host the 31st Olympiad, we always said that Rio was ready, and we can now declare it,” said Rio 2016 Organizing Committee President Carlos Nuzman. “We did it. We made it.

“Rio has made history. The city displayed not only its beauty, but also its capacity to host the biggest sporting event in the world. Rio has been renovated, transformed. It was seven years of a lot of struggle and work, but it was worth it. Every minute.

“Organizing the games in Rio was a challenge. A successful challenge. I will say this again: I am proud of my country, proud of my city, proud of my people.”

Brazilian Interim President Michel Temer did not attend after he was loudly booed at the opening ceremony.

Yuriko Koike and Tokyo 2020 chiefs promise not to leave ‘white elephants’

BY ANDREW MCKIRDY

STAFF WRITER

Tokyo 2020 Olympic organizers and Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike on Saturday vowed not to leave unused “white elephant” venues to the taxpayer after the Games have finished.

“The citizens of Tokyo are the taxpayers, and we must have their understanding in whatever we do,” said Koike, who was elected governer on Aug. 1 and is currently in Rio de Janeiro preparing to accept the Olympic flag on Tokyo’s behalf at the 2016 Games closing ceremonySunday.

“Before I became governer, there must have been certain procedures that went into the cost calculations and I would like to speak to 2020 organizers and the national government about that. I will not leave white elephants to the taxpayers. I will leave a good legacy. That is the direction I want to see the games take.”

Preparations for the Tokyo Olympics have been dogged by accusations of overspending, with plans for the new National Stadium sent back to the drawing board last summer after the projected cost had almost doubled to ¥252 billion.

Organizers of Rio 2016 have slashed costs with Brazil facing massive economic problems, leaning heavily on temporary arenas and venues that can be repurposed after the games have finished.

Rio’s Future Arena, where the Olympic handball competition has been held, will be taken down and the parts reused to build four state-run schools in nearby neighborhoods.

“What they did in Rio was a good reference for us,” said Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto. “For the purpose of budget reduction in Rio, various innovative ideas were introduced. For us too, of course we have to reduce costs and not waste money.

“We can’t create white elephants. New ideas could be introduced to reduce the budget. We’d like to analyze what kind of processes Rio used.”

The organization of South America’s first Olympics has gone off relatively smoothly this month in Rio, although gridlocked traffic has caused serious delays for athletes, officials and spectators.

“In Tokyo, the road lanes are very narrow,” said Koike. “That’s the reality of the situation and we can’t just expand the roads right away.

“We will have to ask the citizens of Tokyo during the Olympics for their co-operation. We have a population of 13.6 million in Tokyo. We have about 3 million people commuting into the city every day. It’s the largest city in the world in that sense. On my return, I’d like to see to what extent we can do something and how much it will cost.”

Tokyo 2020 organizers will also have to contend with the extreme summer heat and humidity during the July 24-Aug. 9 games.

“We need to think about how we can ensure an environment that will enable people to endure the heat,” said Muto. “We are receiving various ideas from technology companies. For example, pavement technology can be upgraded to evaporate the heat and reduce the temperature. Or mist can be sprayed over the venues and athletes, or we can use more conventional ideas like greenery and planting trees.

“So we will have a variety of countermeasures and we will collaborate with the private sector. It’s a kind of innovation.”

The summer heat could also affect the athletes at Tokyo 2020 if organizers follow the same competition schedule as some previous Olympics held in East Asia.

The finals of the track and field events at the 1988 Seoul Games were held during the blistering afternoon heat to accommodate the wishes of American TV networks, and Japan Olympic Committee President Tsunekazu Takeda admits he is unable to make any promises for 2020.

“I was the sports director of the Nagano Olympics, and at that time it was a very difficult point,” said Takeda. “This time the Tokyo Olympics are going to be staged in the middle of summer, so putting the athletes first has to be the priority. But at the same time, the air time for TV still has to be negotiated.

“We have to be fair to the athletes and we’d like to try on their behalf. Of course I can’t promise anything, but I am hopeful that the athletes-first concept will prevail.”

Tickets for ANA’s Sydney-Tokyo Boeing 787-9 flights now on sale

Tickets for ANA's Sydney-Tokyo Boeing 787-9 flights now on sale

Japanese airline ANA will begin Boeing 787-9 flights between Sydney and Tokyo from 11 December 2015, introducing competition for Qantas on the resurgent Australia-Japan route.

The daily service will be flown by a Boeing 787-9, which will depart from Tokyo’s downtown Haneda Airport at 10.10pm as NH879 to reach Sydney at 9.35am the next day.

After spending the day in Sydney, ANA’s Dreamliner will be wheels-up at 9.30pm as flight NH880, allowing business travellers to hit the ground running in Haneda – perhaps fuelled by an extra strong shot of coffee – at 5.05am the next day.

Inbound travellers headed for elsewhere in Japan will have plenty of domestic ANA connections to choose from, with the airline offering an add-on ‘Experience Japan’ fare of ¥10,800 (A$120) for any domestic segment.

Tickets for the new route are now on sale, with return business class prices from the December 11 debut of ANA’s flight NH879 through to early January 2016 start at ¥304,720 or $3,312.

ANA pulled out of the Sydney-Tokyo route in July 1999, leaving the corridor in the hands of Qantas and its Oneworld partner Japan Airlines.

Qantas currently runs a daily flight between Sydney and Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, while Japan Airlines operates a daily Boeing 777 service between Sydney and Narita. Qantas’ low-cost arm Jetstar flies from several Australia cities into Tokyo and Osaka.

Inside ANA’s Boeing 787-9

ANA has the world’s largest fleet of Boeing 787s, with both the original 787-8 (for which it was the launch airline) and the larger, longer-range 787-9.

Sydney will be seeing an ‘international’ version of ANA’s Boeing 787-9, rather than the model used for domestic flights (which has more seats overall, and only recliners in business class instead of fully-flat beds).

The international Dreamliner has 215 seats split between business class, premium economy and economy cabins.

The 48 business class seats, arranged in a staggered 1-2-1 layout so that each passenger enjoys privacy as well as direct aisle access, convert to a fully flat bed.

A cosy 21 seat premium economy zone offers more legroom across the 2-3-2 configuration, with a swing-up legrest in the front row and swing-down footrests in all other rows, plus AC and USB power for every seat.

There are no surprises in economy, with 146 seats arranged 3-3-3 at a respectable 34 inch pitch and AC and USB sockets close at hand.

ANA has also dressed one of its Boeing 787-9s in an eye-catching Star Wars livery

… inspired by R2-D2, to be precise…

James Akel compara funcionamento urbano de Tokyo e São Paulo

 

TOKYO E SEU FUNCIONAMENTO URBANO PELA ENGENHARIA

O arquiteto e urbanista Aref Farkouh, grande conhecedor das políticas urbanas, nos conta que Tokyo tem 300 km de vias elevadas.

Sem elas a cidade não existiria como é e abriga dezena de milhões de habitantes.

São bastante necessárias e as pessoas sabem desta necessidade.

São Paulo tem menos de 3 km de minhocão e meia dúzia de ativistas que querem acabar com ele.

E este minhocão é a única ligação da cidade entre o leste e oeste.

Ao beneficiar 10 mil moradores locais vai prejudicar 10 milhões de pessoas.

O prefeito sabe disto.

E o que constatamos é que esta é mais uma das ditaduras das minorias comandadas pelo prefeito Haddad e sua turma.

O que a gente pensa do prefeito é o que todo mundo já sabe que a gente pensa

Qantas to start daily Brisbane-Tokyo flights from August

Qantas will run daily flights between Brisbane and Tokyo from August 1st, boosting the route from the previously-announced four flights a week.

The direct service between the Queensland and Japanese capitals will run on an Airbus A330 fitted with both business class and economy seats, which will eventually be upgraded to the latest model with the airline’s new  Business Suite business class.

QF61 will depart Brisbane at 11.15am to reach Tokyo’s Narita Airport at 7.25pm that same day; the QF62 return leg will be wheels-up from Narita at 8.55pm for a 7.15am arrival into Brisbane the following day.

Qantas had previously declared it would also fly to Narita “on three alternate days from another Australian port,”, but has opted to anchor the schedule in Brisbane with the daily frequency which is preferred by business travellers.

The current daily Sydney-Narita flights will shift to Haneda, Tokyo’s second international airport which is preferred by many business travellers as it’s located much closer to the city itself.

The Sydney-Haneda service will remain daily on a Boeing 747.

“We expect the Sydney to Haneda services to be particularly popular with business travellers” predicted Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce, “and this traffic is likely to keep growing off the back of the Free Trade Agreement between Australia and Japan.”

Review: Japan’s Shinkansen ‘Green Car’ first class: Hiroshima-Osaka

Zooming along at up to 300km/h but without the hassle of airport security and excess baggage charges, Japan’s high-speed Shinkansen trains are a great way to commute between the country’s major cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nagoya.

Business travellers will feel most at home in the ‘Green Cars’ – the first class of the Shinkansen – which Australian Business Traveller tested on a recent Nozomi, Tokaido-line service from Hiroshima to Shin-Osaka.

Shinkansen: finding your car

Much like on an aircraft, seats in the Shinkansen’s Green Cars are all assigned – and with English-speaking staff at the ticketing counters, choosing a spot was an easy task.

Your ticket will show a train number, a departure time, the car number you’ll be travelling in, and finally, your seat number in that particular car.

We’re after the high-speed Nozomi 126 service, which is clearly displayed on the sign at Platform 13:

Once you’re on the correct platform, follow the clear signage to locate your car. With a Green Car ticket, you’ll be looking for either car eight, nine or ten – all of which are conveniently located in the centre of the platform.

You can then double-check that you’re in the right place by looking at the floor signage…

… and then finally as the train arrives, with the service number and destination displayed on the LCD screen, and the car number and Green Car logo spotted adjacent to the door.

Even though you’re catching a domestic train service in a country where English isn’t the first language, you won’t need to speak a word of Japanese to navigate the Shinkansen.

Shinkansen: Green Car seats

Now that you’re on the right train and in the correct car, just follow the signs to find your seat and feel free to hang your jacket or coat.

Rather than the 2-3 layout found in the regular cars, seats in the Green Cars come in pairs of two – ditching the middle seat to give each passenger a little extra space:

Very much the ‘first class’ of Japanese railway, each seat comes with a seat warmer, a reading light…

… its own AC power outlet hidden in the arm rest…

… a fold-out beverage table…

… and an adjustable foot rest:

It’s great for shorter passengers, although taller travellers may lament that the foot rest doesn’t retract – restricting your available space.

There’s also a fold-down meal-size tray table in every seat…

… which was sturdy enough to support this author’s 3kg laptop.

Regrettably, there’s no wireless Internet access available aboard the train. To remain connected you’ll need to tether your laptop to your mobile phone or a portable 3G/4G hotspot, although dropouts are frequent when zipping through tunnels.

Cabin-sized bags can be stored on the shelves above the seats, while larger suitcases can be placed at either end of the carriage.

If possible, we’d recommend placing your bag at the front of the cabin rather than at the rear, as you’ll be able to keep an eye on the area as the train is approaching each station.

Shinkansen: meals and snacks

Despite holding a ticket for the premium travel class, Green Car seats don’t come with any inclusive food or beverage.

Instead, you’ll receive a moist towelette shortly after taking your seat – and on this service, vouchers for ¥50 (A$0.53) off ice cream purchases were also distributed.

It was put to good use, with the total price just ¥410 (A$4.37) for both an ice cream and a refreshment from the Harry Potter-esque trolley.

Payment can be made in cash (Japanese Yen) or by using your Suica or Pasmo travel card, although you’ll mainly find snacks, drinks and simple foods such as packet sandwiches rather than anything that passes for a full ‘meal’.

Given that train passengers are in a captive marketplace, that’s quite a reasonable asking price – especially when I’ve spotted Australian convenience stores charging more than that for a Coke on its lonesome.

Summary

Travelling on the Shinkansen avoids the rigmarole that is air travel such as having to arrive early to check-in baggage, wading your way through security screening and then waiting in a long line of people before finally reaching your seat.

You simply buy a ticket and choose your seat as you would with an airline, and then wait on the correct platform and step on board with no reasonable restrictions on baggage weights and sizes – if you can carry and lift it yourself, you’ll generally be fine.

The trains also stop in the city with easy access to connecting train and subway services if you’re a little further out, rather than having to fly into an airport, wait for your luggage, cart it onto your airport transfer and then spend another 30-60 minutes reaching your hotel from there.

Sure, there’s no pre-departure lounge to enjoy or frequent flyer points to collect, but with trains running so frequently I daresay you won’t need a lounge as you’ll be off in a matter of minutes.

With tickets in the Green Cars only A$45 more than a regular seat on this particular route, travelling in comfort, peace and quiet is easily worth the slightly higher ticket price, and is still comparable to what you’d pay to fly from A to B.
