As the Tokyo 2020 Olympics anticipates fewer visitors this year, the BBC is reminding Japan fanatics what they are missing out on with a delightful trailer, rich with cultural elements, for the upcoming games.
Viewers’ wanderlust is first provoked with a manhole cover, no less, adorned with a pictogram of a track athlete. Believe it or not, much attention is placed on these street features in the nation, with islands installing distinct Pokémon manhole covers to entice tourists.
Rife with nostalgia, the advertisement includes gachapon machines and retro video games introducing Tokyo 2020 athletes as collectible figurines and game avatars.
