My goal is a transport system
that wows the world.
One of Osawa’s missions is to develop a system to serve as the primary means of transport for the athletes and people involved in the Games. He will initiate operation plans for supplying vehicles such a buses and cars (fleet vehicles). This may not sound like tall order, but when you consider the 2000 buses and 4000 fleet vehicles required, the sheer scale makes it a different story all together. The plan also requires continuous 24-hour operation and a system for checking that passengers have reached their destinations, plus making arrangements with stakeholders further adds to the difficulty. In addition to being entrusted with people’s lives, the highly specialized world of sport makes it difficult to ask those involved for their cooperation. While striving to reach an agreement that delivers overall optimization using his recognized professional knowledge and strong leadership skills, Osawa hopes to reduce the burden on those involved as they take on these highly responsible tasks. Coordinating something of this magnitude is quite a formidable undertaking.
However, Osawa feels this tough challenge will provide an opportunity for him to demonstrate his skills. There is no one who knows more about transport infrastructure in Japan. Having acquired knowledge and honed his skills in challenges faced up to now, Osawa considers himself to be the only one capable of creating a transport system that impresses the world and leaves people thinking, “Wow! Is this the level of mastery that Tokyo has reached?” Despite his confidence, however, Osawa acknowledges that he has a huge task ahead. In the future, certain situations may call for cutting-edge technology to be included in the transport system, such as facial recognition and the latest car navigation systems. With the start of the Games drawing ever closer, Osawa vows to calmly find a solution to each problem that arises without letting his feelings take control. While gaining the trust of those around him, he aims to collaborate with a single team that overcomes self-interests and forges ahead toward the success of the Games.
