JAPAN TODAY — May 19, 2015
Japan plans to scale back the main stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as the government runs short of money and time, the country’s sports minister said Monday.

Extreme Japan

Having a truly romantic Japanese Valentine’s Day last Saturday, the Japanese lady shown below is enjoying an “Extreme Ironing” event on the very frozen Lake Hibara at 17 degrees Fahrenheit (-7℃).

Besides “Extreme Ironing,” Lake Hibara—part of the volcanic caldera of Mount Bandai*—is a popular ice-fishing spot in Kita-shiobara, Fukushima Prefecture, in northern Japan.
According to their fun facebook page, Extreme Ironing and ice-fishing is perfect way to enjoy Fukushima Prefecture (land of the dread nuclear disaster {3Yen 2015-01-25}) where anything is possible.

The new Tokyo Olympic stadium is just a cover for the underground base being built beneath it for PM Abe’s gray alien allies.
