Tokyo 2020 Paralympics: Our Pledge for a Successful Games (Ms. KOIKE Yuriko, Governor of Tokyo)

post date : 2021.06.10


The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games will begin on August 24. As the first city to host the Summer Games twice, overcoming unprecedented difficulties, what message will Tokyo send to the world, what kind of future do they envision, and what legacies do they intend to pass on to future generations?


The FPCJ has invited Ms. KOIKE Yuriko, Governor of Tokyo, who demonstrated her passion for the Paralympics with the comment, “The Tokyo Games will not be a success unless the Paralympics are a success,” to speak one week before the Paralympics begin.
