An accessibility guide designed to ensure the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games are "fully inclusive and accessible to everyone" has been published by the Organising Committee.
The guidelines have been drawn up following close consultation with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), relevant Government organisations, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, relevant municipal authorities and several disability groups.
According to the IPC, they will be used to "ensure that all venues, facilities, infrastructure and services provided for the Games are accessible and inclusive for all".
It comes after Tokyo 2020 established their Universal Design 2020 plan, which will see the Government "redouble efforts" to promote an inclusive society.
"The publication of the Tokyo 2020 Accessibility Guidelines is one of a whole host of excellent measures that the Organising Committee is undertaking to ensure a fully inclusive Games," IPC chief executive Xavier Gonzalez said.
"The new guidelines very much compliment the IPC's own standards and hopefully can act as a blueprint for other Japanese organisations to further their accessibility too.
"In addition to the excellent measures Tokyo 2020 is undertaking, the Japanese government is also looking to also implement its Universal Design 2020 Action Plan which will further accessibility across the country.
"All these measures highlight, how hosting a Paralympic Games can act as a catalyst to improving social inclusion."
Accessibility for athletes and other people with impairments at last year's Paralympic Games was a concern in the build-up to the event in Rio de Janeiro amid a series of budget cuts.
Prior to the Games, IPC President Sir Philip Craven, due to stand down from the role later this year, had praised the city of Rio for their accessibility plans.
It came despite Rio being perceived to be a difficult city to navigate.
Sir Philip recently met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, where he said the Universal Design 2020 plan would "promote a barrier-free attitude amongst the people of Japan and make for more accessible facilities".
