#Japan is READY!! A message from #Tokyo2020 #HNNSports

The Rio Olympic Games, took place from August 5th for 17 days, has drawn to an end.

In the closing ceremony at the Maracana Stadium, athletes who had played exciting games were smiling and shaking their body to festive rhythms. The whole stadium was united in the ceremony that featured lively, quintessentially Brazilian music and dance performances.

It was an impressive ceremony—athletes, staff, and volunteers involved in the Rio 2016 all became one beyond countries and races. Don’t you think so?

At the flag hand-over ceremony, the Olympic banner was returned from Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes to International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach, who then passed it over to Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike. 

In the trailer part of Tokyo’s presentation, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Olympians, and famous characters from Japan’s representative animations and games showcased the charms of the city and Japan. How did you like it? Thank you everyone who appeared on the trailer.

At the end of the presentation, a “See you in Tokyo” message emerged on the stage, and the sky was lit up in an array of big fireworks in red and white—the symbolic colors of Japan.
This was the very first step towards the Tokyo 2020!

The Rio 2016 Paralympic Games will start in two weeks, from Thursday, September 8th. We hope to see more great performances from Paralympians! ‪#‎Rio2016‬
