Local municipalities, the route and Celebration venues

In principle, the same local municipalities will manage Olympic Torch Relay segments in 2021. The route and Celebration venues will also be retained as planned; however changes may be necessary as a result of other unavoidable circumstances.

Places of interest in Aomori

The Aomori leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Hirosaki and will make its way to the city of Aomori where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave the city of Mutsu, travelling across the eastern part of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Hachinohe for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Aomori include: the World Heritage Site in the village of Nishimeya; the Shirakami mountain range; Goshogawara’s Tachineputa-no-Yakata, where a spectacular neputa float is displayed; the mouth of the Seikan Tunnel in Imabetsu that runs under the Tsugaru Strait and connects the islands of Honshu and Hokkaido; the city of Mutsu’s Tanabu River; and the grand and mystic Lake Towada in the city of Towada.
