An Olympics like no other kicked off in Tokyo on Friday night with National Stadium filled to only a fraction of its capacity.⁠

Emperor Naruhito announced the start of the Summer Games with Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga there to oversee the opening ceremony.⁠

The event featured a fireworks show and a light display featuring more than 1,800 drones.⁠

Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka lit the Olympic cauldron at the end of the ceremony.⁠

But not everyone welcomed the delayed Games’ arrival, as hundreds gathered to protest, calling on them to be cancelled to save lives.⁠
