What is the time difference between Tokyo and the U.S.? A helpful guide to watch the Olympics

You want to watch the Tokyo Olympics, and you’re even willing to wake up at weird hours to do that. But you don’t know when to set your alarm.

If that sounds like something that could reasonably happen to you sometime between now and the Closing Ceremony of the Olympics on August 8, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time. That means if it is noon in New York City, it is 1: 00 a.m. where all of the Olympic athletes are. So if an event is scheduled to start at 7: 00 p.m. in Tokyo, it will be 6: 00 a.m. on the East Coast and 3 a.m. on the West Coast.

If you’re in a different time zone, convert your time to EST and then use this guide if you need a visual explanation any time over the next few weeks:

1: 00 a.m. 12: 00 p.m.
2: 00 a.m. 1: 00 p.m.
3: 00 a.m. 2: 00 p.m.
4: 00 a.m. 3: 00 p.m.
5: 00 a.m. 4: 00 p.m.

9: 00 a.m. 8: 00 p.m.
10: 00 a.m. 9: 00 p.m.
11: 00 a.m. 10: 00 p.m.

3: 00 p.m. 2: 00 a.m.
4: 00 p.m. 3: 00 a.m.
5: 00 p.m. 4: 00 a.m.
6: 00 p.m. 5: 00 a.m.
7: 00 p.m. 6: 00 a.m.
8: 00 p.m. 7: 00 a.m.

10: 00 p.m. 9: 00 a.m.
