Earlier this week we were excited to announce that it is just one year to go until the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympics games. The Olympics will be taking over Japan from 24 July to 9 August and the Paralympics from 12 August to 12 September as the country hosts the games for a second time since 1964. Taking place on 24 July 2020 in Tokyo the grand opening ceremony will welcome an estimated 206 nations.
Five new sports; baseball/softball, karate, skateboarding, sports climbing and surfing, have been added to the list this year making 33 participating sports. Enjoy being entertained between fixtures at any one of Japan’s stunning 22 UNESCO World Heritage sites and fully immerse in the local culture and traditions.
