Sochi Olympics

Amazing and touching stories in the Olympic Games have given Japanese people hopes and dreams. People of every generation must have gained the power to believe in something better. 19-year-old Mr. Hanyu won a gold medal and two medals went to 41-year-old Mr. Kasai. Ms. Asada's performance in the free program of the women's figure skating was just brilliant. I believe that every one of the Japanese people was moved and enchanted by their outstanding play. Tokyo Governor Yoichi Masuzoe must have witnessed the scenes during his stay in Sochi. The governor is anticipated to make the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games big success with his strong leadership getting help from foreign counties. Keidanren is ready to provide full support.
