My, how Japan has changed

This is an interesting article about some changes that have taken place (at least easily measurable ones) between the previous time Tokyo held the Olympics (1964) and now. 

Here's an interesting one:
17. Japan’s  land area was 369,776 square kilometers a year after the Olympics. In 2013 it was 377,961 square kilometers, thanks mostly to landfill.

I thought the Tokyo Olympics were 1964. There you go.

Sorry, I didn't think I'd put anonymous.

You're quite right Judie. A typo, I guess.
