On Saturday 28 October, Tokyo 2020 will celebrate a very important milestone: on that day there will be exactly 1,000 days to go until the opening of the 2020 Olympic Games.

On the countdown day of 28th October, Tokyo 2020 will stage a “1,000 Days To Go” celebratory event. The main street of Tokyo’s famous Nihonbashi district will be decorated with new graphics and turned into a giant sports field for the day. After watching demonstrations by athletes, the public will have the opportunity to learn about and practice some of the sports that will make their first appearance in the Olympic Games in 2020.

Plenty is yet to come in the next 1,000 days: mascots, volunteers, cultural events, tickets, test events…
