Tokyo is bidding to host its first Summer Olympics since the 1964 Games. The plan features a 'compact' and 'dynamic' Olympics based on Tokyo's financial wealth and track record in hosting international sports events. It also aims to allay fears of damage from a big earthquake or radiation from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. AFP PHOTO/BEN STANSALL (Photo credit should read BEN STANSALL/AFP/Getty Images)
