The 5,000 medal cases for the Tokyo Olympics were all hand-made by a handful of craftsmen in a town with a population of 4,400 in Hokkaido.


The design of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games medal case is inspired by the Tokyo 2020 Games emblem. Each case pays tribute to the Olympians who have reached the pinnacle of athletic achievement. Japanese craftsmen will carefully create the cases with a blend of traditional and modern techniques. Like each individual Olympian who steps onto the field of play, each medal case is distinct and has its own wood fibre pattern subtly infused into the design.
