Tokyo 2020 Games of the Olympic and Paralympic have been successfully delivered in safe and secure, even under the unprecedented worldwide crisis due to COVID-19 pandemic, with sophisticated operation and thorough infection prevention measures as well as generous supports from all the stakeholders. Tokyo Metropolitan Government now faces a new phase to integrate and develop the legacy generated through the Games in order to facilitate our steps to achieve the ‘Future Tokyo.’ Commemorating the actions leading up to the Games with the memories of athletes who devoted everything they have to compete and their supporters, we have created " TOKYO2020 Memories Leading to the Future " to share what the Games provided to Tokyo as the host city and integrate the achievements to the development of the city.  The document introduces the major efforts and achievements of 9 categories such as "Safe and secure Games" and "Road map to sustainable society".
