If you had expected a big party like the opening ceremonies in the past, you might have been a little bit disappointed. But I think Japan pulled off a very graceful, emotional ceremony with respect to the current situation.
With or without spectators, the athletes looked very proud and happy, and I just hope that they can all give their best and the event will bring some happiness to people in the world, and those who strived for making this event possible. Thank you Japan, for holding this event, in this difficult time.

Loves & greetings from 🇹🇷 Turkey! Good luck to all participants. 🏺🇬🇷 Greece's position of honor in the Parade of Nations is a tribute to its history as the birthplace of the ancient Olympics, as well as the host of the first modern Olympics in 1896. At every Olympics, the Greek delegation leads the way, followed then by all the other nations in alphabetical order according to the host nation's language, with the host nation entering last. A tradition has also developed of honoring upcoming Olympic host nations by having them move to the end of the order, just in front of the host nation. For instance, this year in Tokyo, the US delegation entered third-to-last, as hosts of the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles; followed by France, which will host the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris; and finally, the Japanese delegation.

Amazing Opening Ceremony! Tears came into my eyes! It reminds us ALL in this planet what it means to be human.. and yes, fight for faster, higher, stronger.. and together! To be good, very good, body and mind.... Not forgetting our planet, climate, biodiversity, minorities, refugees and so on...
The Olympics represent the best of our species... I hope it remains a symbol of hope for millions of years to come!

Beautiful opening! <3 And what is the most important, today the World is once again close together. Olympics connect nations and reminds us how much we are all the same. It's time to forget about politics, leave the past, and feel the love and unity. We are not responsible for what our ancestries did through history, it is not our fault that politicians divided us, but we are responsible for what we are making today. Let's make something great and noble, let's new Olympic games be an opening to a chapter of building great relations and collaborations with all nations. I hope that voice of conscience will echo in the hearts of the people, and one day we will all join as mankind, cherishing love and enjoying universal World peace.

The commentators forgot Laura Ludwig as the second flag holder for Germany. She is the Olympic champion in women's beachvolleyball from Rio and was the world champion in 2017 and is a four time european champion.

This is probably the smallest crowd at an Olympic opening ceremony since St.Louis 1904. Very sad for Tokyo, which really did a good job under the circumstances.

22:16 This was a strong and powerful message, which has been needed for a long time after the Munich massacre in 1972! Rest In Peace, to the Israeli athletes lost their lives.

The few moments in which all countries can set aside our issues with one another, forget our feuds, and compete in a friendly and loving fashion! I wish the greatest of love to all countries! Πάμε Ελλαδίτσα!!! 🇬🇷
For anyone looking for that brilliant bit of choreography on pictograms, the intro to it starts at 3:25:25
Hands down. Japan is the best country there is, for featuring and honoring the work of their talented video game music composers

Stunning! Great job Japan!
I hope this will improve relations with Japan, and also make tourism and western culture more accepted when the athletes and visitors mingle in Tokyo city during the breaks. I even heard a rumor that taxi companies are forcing their drivers to learn better English and those who pass their English exams will be given priority outside the Olympic hall taxi line.
