Tokyo is set to host the 2020 Olympic Games. The last time Tokyo hosted the Olympics was in 1964.
Kyodo News has some interesting photographs showing how Tokyo looked in 1964 and in 2017. From the photographs, it is very obvious that the city had changed quite a bit in 53 years.
In 1964, when Tokyo last held the Olympic Games, the city's population stood at around 10 million.
In 2017, with Tokyo's next Olympics just three years away, an extra three million people are living in the city, whose landscape and infrastructure has changed immeasurably in the intervening years.
The following photographs illustrate some of the changes Tokyo has seen since 1964.
