As in 1960, the best six gymnasts in the individual all-around advanced to the apparatus final. The final apparatus score was made up of 50% of the all-around total and a final optional program. This event was won in 1960 by Czechoslovakian Eva Bosáková-Věchtová, who also won the event at the 1962 World Championships, but she was not on the Czechoslovakian team in Tokyo. In her absence the gold was won by her countrywoman Věra Čáslavská, one of three individual golds she won in Tokyo, including the all-around and horse vault. Behind her Soviets went 2-4, with Tamara Manina winning silver and Larysa Latynina the bronze.
