The Japan Times wrote an interesting local perspective of what the Olympic 10 km marathon swim finalists may face in Odaiba Marine Park at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics: see here.

Currently, swimmers who wish to swim in Odaiba Marine Park are asked to sign a waiver listing 23 rules to observe, including Rule No. 9: “When the yellow flag is out in the venue, please refrain from swimming with your face inside the water.”
