Saturday/ Tokyo to bid for 2020 Games

Tokyo is making a bid for the 2020 Olympics, and there was a section about it on NHK TV.  They hosted in 1964 and will be able to use some of the facilities after upgrading it – such as increasing the capacity of the 54,000-seat National Stadium to 80,000 seats.

Which other cities are putting in a bid? Here are all of them.  Baku and Doha are certainly not as well known as the other three!  Rome withdrew its bid after the government dropped its support, citing the financial difficulties of Italy and that the money is needed elsewhere.
