Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said such a move would have a "major" impact on people's lives.

日本内阁官房长官菅义伟称,此举将对国民生活产生“重大”影响。

"We plan broad measures such as earlier start times, more greenery and heat-inhibiting pavements," he said.

菅义伟表示:“我们计划采取更广泛的措施,例如较早的比赛时间、更多的绿化和防热路面。”

The 2020 games, which will be held in late July and early August, fall during the country's hottest and most humid months.

2020年奥运会将于该年的七月末、八月初举行,而那恰恰是日本最热、最潮湿的月份。

Olympic officials had earlier requested Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to adopt DST so that events like the marathon could be scheduled in the cooler morning hours.

东京奥组委官员此前曾请求日本首相安倍晋三采用夏令时,这样就可将马拉松等项目安排在较为凉爽的早间进行。
