About the Tokyo 2020 Sponsorship Programme: The Olympic sponsor programme is divided into four separate categories, with the IOC's The Olympic Partner (TOP) programme constituting the very highest level of Olympic sponsorship. The Worldwide TOP Partners who support the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are Coca-Cola, Atos, Bridgestone, Dow, GE, McDonald's, Omega, Panasonic, Procter and Gamble, Samsung, Toyota and Visa.

About Daiwa House Industry: Daiwa House Industry was founded in 1955 with the corporate philosophy of contributing to the industrialization of construction. The company's first product was the Pipe House. This was followed by the Midget House and other new products which laid the foundations for Japan's first prefabricated housing. Since then, the company has expanded across a wide field of operations, including the construction of single-family houses - its core business, rental housing, condominiums, commercial facilities, and general business-use buildings. Our goal is to create a sustainable corporate group by pushing forward with expansion that is always two steps ahead.
