Queue enthusiasts in Japan started forming lines for the Tokyo Olympics open ceremony on Tuesday near the new Olympic Stadium in Shinjuku Ward, which is still under construction.
“After lining up for a roll ice-cream for 10 hours I thought I’d give the 2020 Olympics a shot,” says 29-year-old Satsuei Nandemosuru.
Line participants have flooded social media with photos of themselves waiting in the queue.
“Kono retsu meccha instabae shichauze!” said 19-year-old queue-goer Mitekure Uchiwo, which translated into English means, “I’m going to instabae the shit out of this line.”
Most of the queue participants will not hang around at the open ceremony, but will just take a few quick photos featuring rabbit ears or dog tongues as evidence they were there.
