Tokyo 2020 related Exhibitions in the UK

The Embassy's latest exhibition, "TOKYO 2020: The Exhibition", will be the first in a double bill featuring the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic games.

Tokyo first hosted the Olympics in 1964, with the iconic poster designs of KAMEKURA Yasaku creating imagery that went on to form the backdrop for Japan's postwar 'economic miracle'. The exhibition begins with reproductions of these iconic posters, before exploring how Tokyo 2020 aims to be the most sustainable games in history. With video displays, details on the new National Stadium, Tokyo scenery, updates on the Tokyo 2020 Games and more, we hope that Olympic and Paralympic fans from the UK will enjoy the exhibition.

Alongside the Embassy's exhibition, Japan House London currently has a display which introduces TOKOLO Asao, the designer of the Tokyo 2020 emblems and other works. It will be followed by a new exhibition - Tokyo 1964 Designing Tomorrow - starting in August.
