JAPAN has been celebrating after hearing Tokyo will host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympics games.
The announcement spelt disappointment for Turkey and Spain, though, as they had also been in the running.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said: "I would like to thank everyone in the Olympic movement and we will host a wonderful Olympic Games."
The man leading the bid, Tsunekazu Takeda, added: "It is a great honour Tokyo has been chosen."
The Olympic Games were last held in Tokyo in 1964, and this decision means they will be the first city in Asia to host the games twice.

Chief medical officer for Scotland, Sir Harry Burns, said: "I would like to see the guidance for school toilets updated, to ensure basic hygiene standards including access to hot water and soap and proper hand washing facilities, are adhered to in every single school in Scotland."
The report follows a survey of 2,000 young people by Ipsos MORI.
