TOKYO: Japanese sports fans bid an emotional farewell to Tokyo’s National Stadium at the weekend with a lavish ceremony to close the venue before demolition begins in July. The stadium, built to host the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, will be dismantled over 15 months and replaced on the same site with a new $1.6 billion venue to stage the 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Olympics.
