Tokyo 2020 Accessibility Guidelines

Tokyo Olympic and Parlympic Games logosJapan has committed to the adoption of universal design in preparing for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics in 2020.  This has been well received by the International Paralympic Committee President, Sir Philip Craven: “Universal design will promote a barrier-free attitude among the people of Japan and make for more accessibility facilities. I hope through this place we will see the marrying of Japan’s strong traditions with the innovative culture that is world renowned for in order to make for a more inclusive society.”

As part of the preparations, the Tokyo 2020 Accessibility Guide has been published and can be acquired by emailing the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
