(SFC) Australian photographer Delly Carr captured Tokyo 2020’s three core strengths of Delivery, Celebration and Innovation during the month of may with a photo shoot in the Japanese capital.

“I’m amazed with how cosmopolitan Tokyo is,” Carr said. “I come to Ginza and there are French cafes, Italian restaurants, and then you also have your traditional Japanese restaurants.

“Tokyo is cool. From Akihabara to Harajuku, there are a lot of cool things and the lifestyle is cool. What is cool is everyone is very individual here. Tokyo isn’t shaped by other trends in the world. It is very unique, and you have your own sense of culture and fashion here.”

Carr also spoke of the city’s exceptional hospitality and the Bid Committee’s three core strengths, calling Delivery the “strongest point.”

“And celebration, Japan loves sport and they will take the whole Games to heart,” Carr said. “It will be exciting for all the people here.

“I will do everything I can to make sure Tokyo wins. I’ve been here a week and seen a lot more than I thought was possible. Tokyo will do an amazing job. Of course they will.”

Tokyo is bidding against Madrid and Istanbul to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games. The Host City will be awarded by the International Olympic Committee at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires this September.
