Their identification cards will contain chips allowing facial recognition technology to automatically verify their identity at all checkpoints.
It aims to prevent entry using borrowed, stolen or counterfeit ID cards.
It should also reduce queuing time during the summer months.
Each venue will also be surrounded by a fence between 2.5 and three metres high, Kyodo News reported, while infrared sensors and surveillance cameras will be in operation 24 hours per day.
Machines will also be used to detect forged tickets while new high performance cameras are among other reported innovations.
