TOKYO -- Just over half of the Japanese public supports holding the Olympic Games in Tokyo next month as long as hard limits are placed on the number of spectators, a Nikkei-TV Tokyo survey for the month of June finds.

Some 22% said that setting the maximum number of spectators that can attend a single event at 10,000, as currently planned, would be appropriate, while 33% said the events should instead be spectator-free. Another 4% said the games should be carried out as usual.
