The next host was afforded a short time to showcase their country and give a teaser trailer of their plans for the next Games.

It's a fast paced, futuristic trailer featuring athletes in action against a Tokyo backdrop and scenes from manga cartoons Capitan Tsubasa and Doraemon and video game Pac Man. Ending with the prime minister Shinzo Abe emerging from a Super Mario pipe dressed as Super Mario himself.
