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 Chiba

The Chiba leg of the Torch Relay begins in Kisarazu City’s “Umihotaru” — a floating parking lot in the middle of Tokyo Bay. The first day ends in Sammu, the second in Chiba and the third in Matsudo, with a celebration taking place at the end of each day.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Chiba include: Makuhari Messe in the city of Chiba, a venue for many Olympic and Paralympic sports; Tsurigasaki Surfing Beach, the venue for Olympic surfing; the port of Choshi, boasting the highest volume of fish in Japan; Narita’s Sanrizuka Sakura-no-oka, with its famous airport; and the historical Mt. Naritasan Shinshoji Temple ⁠— a favourite of tourists visiting the region.
