OLYMPIC TOKYO
Fred R. Smith
July 06, 1964
The buildings on this vastly simplified map of central Tokyo are landmarks for an American visitor this October. The venues are spread throughout the world's largest city—some even far beyond its limits. The principal centers, however, are in three parks, Meiji, Yoyogi and Komazawa, all within half an hour of Tokyo Station. An excellent elevated railway (crossed lines on map), a new subway (dotted lines) and improved highways (white lines) should make getting about in the confusion of Tokyo less of an ordeal than it was in Rome in 1960.
