Message from President

Tokyo is both deeply honoured and humbled by the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) decision to award us the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It is with an incredible sense of excitement that we express our thanks to the IOC members and the wider international sporting community. The Olympic Family has placed its faith in our great city to deliver the memorable Games we have promised, and we will not let them down. We are determined to ensure that the 2020 Tokyo Games will live long in the memories of all athletes, officials, spectators, and, of course, each member of the Olympic Family.

The driving force behind the bid was our “All Japan team,” made up of members from the national and local governments as well as Japan’s business and sporting communities and the general public. We have derived added inspiration from the vivid demonstrations of the power of sport we witnessed in Japan’s disaster-affected areas. I am convinced that, by winning the right to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we have been able to inspire many children in the affected Tohoku region and indeed across the whole of Japan in 2013.

Tokyo is eager to begin formulating our plans for the successful delivery of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Tokyo 2020 will be a superb occasion, staged in the very heart of our dynamic capital city. We take on this immense responsibility both earnestly and with a driving sense of purpose. We are fully committed and stand ready to exert our utmost efforts, to organise and deliver what is sure to be the world’s greatest spectacle in 2020.
