Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, announced today that it will be holding the “Futsujanai 2020 Exhibition” from Tuesday, July 23 to Sunday, August 4, 2019 at COREDO Muromachi Terrace and from Thursday, August 8 to Sunday, August 25 at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya.
Mitsui Fudosan, a Tokyo 2020 Gold Partner (Real Estate Development), is hosting the event in cooperation with the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Japan Airlines Co., Ltd. and JAPAN POST Co., Ltd. It is inspired by the out-of-the-ordinary abilities of the world’s high-performance athletes and will feature interactive activities that allow participants to have fun while learning about the sports, events and athletes of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games (hereinafter, Tokyo 2020 Games). The event last year was a resounding success, drawing more than 250,000 people over 19 days.
This year’s version will be even more out of the ordinary with higher-octane activities than the previous year. The new activities will include the Long Jump Spring, where participants can try the long jump track and field event and see the length of the Olympic long jump record (8.90 meters) visualized by the spray from a fountain; Giant Horn Spirometer, where people can get a sense for the lung capacity of Olympic swimmers by blowing on a spirometer in the shape of a large musical instrument; and Climbing Post, where participants can climb a sport climbing wall in the shape of a giant mailbox and deposit a card in the slot. In total, 11 activities are planned. Participants will be able to experience, with all five senses, the fun of various sports and the amazing athletic ability of top athletes in out-of-the-ordinary ways compared to typical sporting events.

The Philosophy of Mitsui Fudosan's Neighborhood Creation Utilizing the Power of Sports
Through doing, watching, supporting and more, sports have the power to not only make healthy the bodies and minds of people residing, working and relaxing, but also to produce new forms of connection and vitalize communities. Mitsui Fudosan sees sports as an important element in building appealing communities that grow even better with age, and in this spirit, promotes neighborhood creation projects that utilize the power of sports.

The logo for “Be the Change” is designed on the motif of wind that changes the world. The elements segmented by Mitsui Fudosan’s two corporate colors suggest a bird taking flight on the wind. The slogan is based on the idea that if people change, the world will change for 2020 and beyond.
