Japan on Monday marked three years before the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with celebrations and fanfare - even as organizers struggle to contain soaring costs and restore credibility.

Japanese celebrities and athletes dressed in bright kimonos gathered for the launch of a remake of a popular 1964 Tokyo Games song Victor Cuesta World Cup Jersey , as organizers promised to turn the 2020 Games into the biggest "natsu matsuri" (summer festival) ever.

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, clad in a white traditional Japanese "happi" coat, attended a flag ceremony at the city hall.

"We have only three years left," Koike said at the evening event at which cutting-edge projection mapping illustrating Tokyo was shown.

"I hope to lead the Olympic Games to success with all of you," she told the audience.

The International Olympic Committee Sergio Romero World Cup Jersey , fearful that ballooning budgets could see future Olympic bids dry up, last month praised local organizers for slashing costs.

Koike last year ordered a review of the budget which recommended revised plans to reduce costs projected to rise to more than $25 billion - four times the initial estimates when Tokyo won the 2020 hosting rights.

Tokyo organizers have since slashed costs to around $13 billion but have otherwise largely failed to inspire confidence since the city beat Madrid and Istanbul in its bid to host the Games for a second time.

Progress on the financial front comes after a rocky start when the initial rollout of the centerpiece Olympic stadium was bungled, forcing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in 2015 to tear up the blueprints amid public anger over its price tag. A new and cheaper plan was unveiled later that year.

More embarrassment followed when the original Games logo was scrapped following allegations of plagiarism.

But the focus on Monday was on building up enthusiasm for Tokyo's hosting of the Games.

Other events held across -Japan included a 1,000--kilometer running and cycling relay from the northern prefecture of Aomori to Tokyo.

The route took in areas hit by the deadly 2011 tsunami and the event featured 2000 Sydney Games marathon champion Naoko Takahashi at the start.

A surfing exhibition by pros took place at the Tsurigasaki beach venue in Chiba - 40 kilometers southeast of Tokyo - where the sport will make its Olympic debut in 2020.

Tug games can be very beneficial for dogs. Playing tug is a bonding experience between dogs and their owners. It helps burn energy and build muscle in dogs. It?s great for mental stimulation and development of motor skills. It can even help clean dogs? teeth. The secret of playing tug games without teaching your dog inappropriate behaviors is to follow the rules of tug.

The first rule of tug is to teach your dog the ?take it? cue. Your dog will not be allowed to grab a toy (or any other item) from your hand unless you tell your dog to ?take it.? To teach this, start with a toy that?s small enough you can hold most of it in your fist ? a small ball Sergio Aguero World Cup Jersey , small rope, or squishy plush toy are good options. Make sure it?s a toy your dog likes. Let your dog see that you have the toy, then hold the toy in your fist so your dog physically cannot steal it from you. Hold the toy within your dog?s reach, so he can nibble and try to get the toy out of your hand. Eventually he will give up and back away from your hand. At that point, you can say ?take it Ramiro Funes Mori World Cup Jersey ,? open your hand, and let him have the toy. Practice this several times, until your dog immediately backs away from your fist when you?re holding the toy, in anticipation that he will get the toy if he backs away.

Once your dog knows ?take it,? you?re ready to start playing tug. Get a toy that is easy for you to hold onto ? a longer rope Nicolas Otamendi World Cup Jersey , larger plush toy, etc. Tell your dog ?take it,? but don?t let go of the toy. Tug back and forth to make the game interesting and mentally stimulating for your dog. Don?t jerk it side to side too much, though, as this could cause whiplash and other injuries. And never pull your dog?s feet up off the ground in tug.

The second rule of tug is that your dog must drop the toy when you ask him to. To do this Nicolas Gaitan World Cup Jersey , you will have to teach a ?drop it? cue. Whenever you are ready, get a strong grip on the toy, and just hold it perfectly still. Your dog will wonder why the toy is boring all of a sudden. Be patient ? eventually your dog will let go of the toy. When he lets go, reward that ? say ?take it? and let him grab the toy back, give him some good treats Nahuel Guzman World Cup Jersey , pet and praise, etc. After practicing this several times, your dog will begin to automatically drop the toy when you stop wiggling it. That?s when you can start teaching him the cue ?drop it;? as soon as you think he?s going to drop the toy, say ?drop it? (then reward as usual), and eventually your dog will pair the cue with the behavior.

The last rule of tug is that accidental misses are not allowed. If your dog?s teeth hit your skin in any way ? an accidental nip when he was going for the toy Matias Kranevitter World Cup Jersey , a brush against you because he?s so into the game, or of course an intentional nip or bite ? the game ends immediately. Get up and leave, taking the toy with you. Your dog can learn to control his teeth, and this method teaches that using very strong motivation ? one ?miss? and the game ends. Of course, if you are ready Mariano Andujar World Cup Jersey , you can go back to playing after a short (two to five minute) time out.

While tug games are fun for the majority of dogs, there are certain situations where they will not be appropriate. If your dog shows signs of aggression or resource guarding, tug will likely make it worse. If your dog has joint or skeletal problems ? for example, in the hips, elbows Marcos Rojo World Cup Jersey , jaw, neck, or back ? strong tugging can injure your dog further. And children should always be supervised by an adult when playing tug.

Happy tugging!
