Tokyo celebrates four years before the Paralympic Games of 2020!

Public events were held at the Keyaki No Mori School, located in the west of Tokyo, and at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Plaza to mark four years until the beginning of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. These events showcased Tokyo 2020’s pledge to celebrate “Unity in Diversity”, one of the three core concepts underpinning preparations for the 2020 Paralympics, by bringing children together and helping them understand the many ways people with impairment overcome their challenges. They also helped raise awareness of Para sports as a high-performance activity.

A total of 94 children participated in a sitting volleyball demonstration with the Japanese national sitting volleyball team at the Keyaki No Mori School. They also learned about the Paralympic values and wrote messages of support to Japan’s Paralympic team, who is set to compete at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
