Japan Airlines is giving away 50,000 free tickets during next year’s Olympics in Tokyo. But they’re not trying to encourage Olympic visitors – they’re trying to keep you out!

In an attempt to cut down on the number of tourists cramming into Tokyo for the Games, the airline is giving away 50,000 free tickets to visit other parts of Japan. But there’s a catch – travelers won’t know where they’re going until after they register.

The Olympics are expected to bring an extra 10 million visitors to the already-crowded city of Tokyo next summer.

Have you ever thought about traveling to see the Olympics live? Would you rather see the Summer or Winter Games?
