*An Olympic truce mural is a monument that athletes and others can sign with wishes for peace, and a Paralympic Mural is a monument that athletes and others can sign with their hopes for the promotion of the rights of people with disabilities and the realization of a sustainable and harmonious society. Five Olympic Truce Murals and three Paralympic Murals made of wood from Tama, west of Tokyo were created by the TMG and installed in the Olympic and Paralympic Village during the Games. The inauguration ceremonies were held with the Governor of Tokyo, the Presidents of the IOC and IPC, the President of the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, and others to send a message of peace from the Village to the world and aim for a peaceful future.
