Tokyo, Japan (WILX) -- Only 400 days left until the Tokyo 20-20 Summer Olympics begin.

Miniature models representing the 55 sports taking part at next year's Olympic and Paralympic games were on display in Tokyo today.

The models, presented in jars within the Tokyo chamber of commerce, form part of a wider display alongside the Tokyo 20-20 torch and the Olympics' mascots.

The models are made using a 3D printer and aim to raise awareness of all the sports for Japanese fans.

Baseball and softball, karate, skateboarding and surfing will all be featured in 20-20 as organizers target a younger audience.
