The Torch Relay in Okinawa will start in the city of Naha, and will journey towards the northern part of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Nago where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave from the city of Tomigusuku, travelling across the southern part of the prefecture, arriving in the city of Itoman for a celebration.

The highlights of the Torch Relay in Okinawa will include: Shurijo Castle, a world heritage site in the city of Naha; Nirai Kanai Bridge, meaning “a utopia on the other side of the ocean”, in the city of Nanjo; the road cutting through the ocean in the city of Uruma, where the drive offers a lovely view of the emerald blue water on both sides of the road.
