The Tokyo 2020 Olympics opening ceremony is finally underway. It began with the Olympic rings entering the stadium. The rings are made out of wood taken from trees planted by athletes of the Olympic Games of Tokyo 1964. Each ring is four meters in diameter. They are accompanied by paper lanterns.

The representatives of all the participating nations will march past as a contingent waving their national flags. This is a proud moment for all nations. Hundreds of people have gathered outside the Tokyo stadium.
There were various performances before the March pasts which lit up the stadium. The main stage for the ceremony, designed by Yohei Taneda, represents the sun.
