Tokyo’s Paralympics could be the big winner with Olympic tickets hard to find and costly.
The lottery for Paralympic tickets for Japan residents opened on Thursday with 2.3 million available. The lottery closes on Sept. 9. A second lottery will be held early next year.
Paralympic tickets should be more available, and less expensive. Tickets for the opening and closing ceremony are about half the price of Olympic tickets. Some event tickets sell for as low as 900 yen, or about $8.
The Paralympics open on Aug. 25, 2020 — one year from Sunday.
