Tokyo to host the 2020 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games

September 8, 2013

On September 8, Tokyo won the right to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We would like to share this wonderful news with everyone who worked tirelessly on the Olympic bid campaign and the people of Japan who supported the campaign throughout.

The Liberal Democratic Party established the Committee for the Promotion of Tokyo's Bid for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, headed by House of Representatives member Hiroshi Hase who worked actively to promote the bid.

Through the experience of the world's largest sporting festival, the people of the world will find a Japanese nation that has re-emerged from the tragedy of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Hosting the Games will also provide Japan with an opportunity to thank our friends around the world for the support they extended and for the bonds that have been forged in our time of hardship and loss.

In the lead-up to the Games, the Liberal Democratic Party will concentrate all its energies to achieve great success for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.
