Tokyo 2020 launched their official Education Programme for the Olympic and Paralympic Games today.
The scheme called the "Yoi Don! Programme" aims to engage young people in Japan before the Games begin.
Yoi don translates as "get set" in English with Japanese organisers saying they hope the project will help the nation’s youth get ready for the Olympics and Paralympics.
A website has been launched as well with resources available for teachers to use in classes along with being able to upload work there to share with other areas of the country.
A statement from Tokyo 2020 said they would like to have schools from every prefecture in Japan using the programme before the Games start.
As part of the launch, Olympic silver and bronze medal winning weightlifter Hiromi Miyake and wheelchair tennis Paralympic bronze medallist Yui Kamiji spoke to students at the Utase Junior High School in Chiba City.
They told the children how their experiences of seeing supporters back athletes at the Games can have a positive impact.
"At the Rio Olympic Games, spectators cheered enthusiastically for all athletes, regardless of their nationally," Miyake said.
"I was really delighted to hear them cheering for me when I did well and even when I didn’t do so well.
"In 2020, I’d like you to cheer for athletes from all around the world, not just for those from Japan."
The programme will also be rolled out at universities in July.
