Japan After the Olympics
In this April 16, 2000 photo, a ceremony is held to unveil a baseball stadium, also known as the Olympic Stadium, which was used for the opening and closing ceremony for the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, in Nagano, central Japan. In Nagano, a city with a population of just 387,000, five large structures were built for the 1998 Winter Games. They remain in use, though many complain that the venues are too big and costly to maintain for the size of the town. (AP Photo/Kyodo News) JAPAN OUT.
