Did Tokyo get it for 2020? Because they've only had it once before, and I thought they weren't going to decide until September 2013?

Tokyo won it in 1964 and 1940, however the latter was cancelled due to the Second Sino-Japanese War. It was then moved to Helsinki, but inevitably cancelled due to WWII. No 2020 bids are included in this quiz.
