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.

Ireland team -is the only team that shows their gratitude to the Japanese hosts... Deeply moved, many thanks and I wish you all the best even though I am not from Ireland .. :-)
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.

Wonderful, beautiful and in many ways poignant and aptly so Olympic Games opening ceremony.... well worth the wait. All the best to all the athletes and competitors involved......🇬🇷💕🇯🇵.
3:26:33 the pictograms! One of the best, if not the best coreographies ever!
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!
Wish the best for ALL participating Athletes! You make us ALL so proud! :)
Japan, thank you for hosting Olympics under such difficult circumstances! Love from Greece

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.

I'm so happy to have the opportunity and see the Olympics this year. Thank you Japan. 54:49 my country ALBANIA 😍. Proud for you guys. Good luck to all the countries. Let's have fun watching sports and let's celebrate diversity. Peace ✌😍☺
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.
Wow Hiromi performed Spectrum at the ceremony! Didn't expect that, but she is always amazing ❤

İçerisinde olağanüstü tasarım, estetik ve binlerce kişinin saatlerce çalışmasının olduğu büyüleyici, ilginç ve bir o kadar da güzel açılış seromonisi.
Very emotional opening ceremony! Congratulations from Greece..
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.
Wish to all the countries good luck from the mother of Olympics😁🇬🇷

Best olympics cermony ever thanks japan
20:28 Kimigayo is considered one of the most controversial national anthems in the world because it is associated with wartime and honouring the emperor.
During the second world war, Emperor Hirohito ordered that all schoolchildren were to salute him and sing Kimigayo in his honour.
Japan allied Germany and Italy during WWII, and while the latter countries used the post war period of overhaul their sense of nationalism, changing national anthems and in Germany's case, the flag, Japan did no such thing.

Inspite of all the struggles and Challenges they have been through, God has made it possible for them to achieved their dreams. Go guys Show your Talents to the World💪💪, Love you all. May God Punish Corona and all its conspirators. It shall not be well them.. The Evil they have done will not live after them but the Evil they have done will live with them.

All things considered, this was a great opening ceremony. However, Japan should get the opportunity to host again soon, this was not their best, but it was the best given the COVID-19 situation. 👏
I love the energy of the voice from the country english announcer! She should be a game announcer!
The pictograms were amazing 3:27:20
