ONTD Original: Japanese Olympics Theme Songs

Whether you're a fan of swimming, gymnastics, or diving, the Olympics brings excitement to everybody. For those that can't watch the Olympic Games in person, the broadcast station is given the task of hyping the games for the audience. What better way to accomplish this task than a feel-good empowering theme song? Although many of us are familiar with Katy Perry's Rise, America isn't the only one broadcasting the Olympic Games nor are they the only one producing theme songs for the event. Here are some Olympics theme songs from Japan.

Namie Amuro - Hero (NHK 2016 Olympics)

[More songs under the cut]EXILE - Joy-ride ~ Kanki no Drive ~ (FujiTV 2016 Olympics)

Arashi - Power of the Paradise (NTV 2016 Olympics)

Superfly & Tortise Matsumoto - STARS (FujiTV 2012 Olympics)
