During Tokyo’s campaign to host the Tokyo 2020 Games which began in 2011, the Tokyo 2020 Bid Committee advocated the power of sport to bring hope and dreams to the areas affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. The origins of the Tokyo 2020 Games are Olympic and Paralympic Games aimed at recovery and reconstruction. The power of sport will raise the spirits of the residents of these affected areas and provide them with courage and inspiration. We will communicate the spirit and determination of the local residents who have overcome many forms of adversity and are steadfastly working towards reconstruction of the areas, as well as communicating our gratitude to the people of the world for their support and encouragement.
