Transport and Accessibility at Tokyo 1964 Paralympic Games

Although Tokyo boasts one of the best transport systems in the world, what many people do not know is that much of it was built for the city staging the 1964 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
A system built 50 years ago, today still carries 26 million people safely and punctually every day and is the envy of many cities around the globe.
Back in 1964 when athletes arrived in Tokyo they were greeted by one of the most advanced and hi-tech transport systems ever created, a far cry from the arduous journey many had faced just to reach Tokyo.
