Photo Journal: Countdown party

Athletes including promising swimmer Rikako Ikee, 18, second from right in the front row, standing in white, and people who are involved with organizing the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, pose for a commemorative photograph with children at an event at Tokyo Skytree in Tokyo's Sumida Ward on July 24, 2018, to celebrate the two-year countdown to the opening of the Olympics. Tokyo Skytree was lit up in the five Olympic colors for the event. At a specially built stage, 731 lanterns were displayed to mark 731 days ahead of the opening. Ikee and other guests came on the stage with other athletes and performed a dance to music for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. (Mainichi)
