Tokyo, 1964 Olympic Games

The host of the 1964 Olympic Games was Tokyo, the capital city of Japan. Japan spent about $3 billion to rebuild Tokyo for the Olympics, revitalizing a city that had been devastated by earthquakes and World War II bombings.

The U.S. and U.S.S.R. ended up neck-and-neck on the medal tally, with the Soviets winning more medals overall, but the Americans winning more gold medals. See the medal table for 1964.
