Tokyo 2020: A mix of traditional and eccentric. The Summer Olympics will return to Tokyo next year for the first time since 1964. The world's best athletes will be on display, of course, but so will Japan's sprawling capital _ a dense mix of the traditional and the eccentric. Small shrines and ancient temples nestle alongside gleaming towers and high-tech gadgetry. Pedestrians meander through a labyrinth of alleyways lined with places to eat or drink, while passengers wedge silently into subway cars or ride on sleek bullet trains.
