TOKYO — Japan’s Olympic minister Seiko Hashimoto said Tuesday the government will consider easing travel restrictions for foreign athletes and games officials for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, which were postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Sources have said that the government considers it necessary to put in place a system that will allow athletes and related parties to enter Japan in case the virus situation prevents it from lifting the entry ban on certain countries and regions.
