Japan has made an issue of Korea's food procurement in  the Tokyo Olympics.

U.S arranged a facility to provide meals for their own athletes,

and Japan hasn't made any opinions about this, which is contradictory.


On July 21st according to USA Today, United States Olympic committee

was supposed to provide 32.7tons of food and drinks to their athletes.

U.S. intended to supply meals that match their athletes' taste with this way.
Korean Sport& Olympic Committee provided food made of Korean ingredients.

 

 

Japan's reponse toward Korea and U.S. differed. Japan strongly resisted at the news of Korean food ingredients  transportation, and said that "there's no need to doubt about Fukushima ingredients". Japanese press criticized that Korea is insisting the hazard of Fukushima ingredients, which are ensured safe.

 

However, Japan hasn't reacted to the U.S. as they did to Korea. No Japanese media have broadcasted about the U.S. actions. Japan claimed that Korea concerned radioactive contamination and made an issue of Fukushima ingredients, while the U.S. didn't.
