Giant Olympic rings were lit up on Friday in the Japanese capital to mark the exit-month countdown to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, along with a firework display near the Tokyo bay.

The Olympic Games are set to kick off on 24 July, exactly six months from Friday, when the Organizing Committee decided to celebrate the countdown at the Odaiba Marine Park, which would host the open-water marathon swimming and the triathlon events during the Games.
