It seems they're getting people prepared for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

I've heard that many people are learning Japanese specifically for that. That's why they wanted to put this section in the tree :P

かいじょう can be many things, without the kanji how do I know?

The same way you'd know if someone asked you this verbally.

It'll be almost always written in kanji in real use, and context will help.

Yeah, I also get it on repeat... It happened so many times in the Japanese course. I think it's a bug

Japanese has a lot of homonyms , so kanji and context are key. 頑張って下さい。

With this weird intonation it sounds like オリンピックか以上までどうやって行きますか?

Can you put どうやって in the beginning of the sentence or does the position matter?

How do you get to Olympic Stadium should be accepted but it's not. This keeps happening in instances where "the" isn't needed. Very stupid oversight.

You're right if the name of the stadium is "Olympic Stadium", but that's not actually the name, which is why we need "the". An Olympic stadium is a specific kind of stadium, so for example, the Olympic stadium in Tokyo is called "New National Stadium".
