The Torch Relay in Tokushima will start in the western town of Higashimiyoshi in Miyoshi City, making its way to the city of Naruto, famous for the whirling current of Naruto Strait, where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave from the southern town of Kaiyo, taking in the rich nature of the prefecture’s sea and mountains, arriving in the city of Tokushima, home to the Awa-odori Dance, for a celebration. The events on both days will feature a colourful “Awa culture” celebration.

The highlights of the Torch Relay in Tokushima will include: the various bridges over Yoshino River that inspired Tokushima to be called the “museum of bridges”; and the Doll Culture Exchange Hall in the town of Katsuura, venue of the “Awa Katsuura Big Hina Dolls Festival” where about 30,000 hina dolls are displayed.
