If the Tokyo Olympics fever is still on you, make a way for the Paralympic Games. The opening ceremony for Tokyo Paralympic was finally held amid glitz and glamour as Japanese Emperor Naruhito declared the Games open. The event was held in the same manner as the recently completed Tokyo Olympics— in the same empty National Stadium, during the pandemic. This year’s theme is “We Have Wings.” It was a breathtaking opening with acrobats, clowns, vibrant music and fireworks atop the stadium to mark the long parades of athletes. Check out the fascinating pictures from the event.
