After a long time, Tokyo Olympic 2020 has come to an end. The closing ceremony is pretty shocking. They played “Gurenge” by LiSA from Demon Slayer anime. Unfortunately, LiSA didn’t play the song herself. In fact, it was a ska song by Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra.
Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra set also included “Sukiyaki,” the Kyu Sakamoto ballad. This is the same ballad that was popular in the 1964 Olympics in Japan. The basic concept of the opening and closing ceremony is “Moving Forward”. The opening ceremony meaning is “United by Emotion” and the closing ceremony means “Worlds we share”. This was all arranged by Mr. Takayuki Hioki who runs a sports management company.
