Tokyo Summer Olympics

Tokyo Summer OlympicsThe 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics are taking place this year due to the pandemic. And, thanks to live streaming, there are more ways to watch than ever before. The competitions run from July 23rd to August 8th.

The Opening Ceremony
We are ready to kick off on Friday night with the Opening Ceremonies. It takes place live on Friday, July 23rd at 4 AM Pacific. But, it will be rebroadcast at 7:30 PM Pacific.

This year’s ceremony, designed for these unprecedented times, has the theme “United by Emotion”. It will demonstrate that we are all connected, living together side-by-side. The plan is to combine both digital and analog expression. And, we can’t wait to watch!

If you are planning to watch after work on Friday, come by the store and pick up something from our extensive sushi selection in the deli case. Grab a nice bottle of sake or imported Japanese beer and pull up a comfortable chair!

How to Stream the Olympics
This year’s Olympics will be broadcast and streamed in the U.S. on NBC Universal platforms, which will feature more than 7,000 hours of coverage. All of Peacock shows and event coverage will be available free of charge except for men’s basketball. And, check out Thrillist for more coverage options.

Tokyo is 16 hours ahead of the Bay Area. That means morning and midday Olympic events will take place during the afternoon and evening in California and evening Olympic events in Tokyo will take place overnight.
