Tokyo Metropolitan Government | Tokyo 2020 host city
Tokyo and the State of New South Wales have shared a long and closely-linked relationship since 1984. As the first city to host Paralympic Games on two occasions, Tokyo has been embracing diversity and inclusiveness in the lead-up to the event. Tokyo hosted a friendly boccia tournament in November 2019, inviting schools and embassies including the Australian Embassy Tokyo. As part of the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education’s Global Friendship Project, staff from the Australian Embassy visited Ogago Elementary School on Tokyo’s remote island, Hachijo. Australian athletes and teams are expected to play well at the world’s greatest sporting events in Tokyo.
