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 Fukuoka

The Fukuoka leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Omuta and will make its way to the city of Fukuoka where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave the town of Chikujo, arriving in the city of Kitakyushu for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Fukuoka include: the area around Chikuzen-Iwaya Station in the village of Toho which is recovering from the damages induced by the 2017 torrential rain in Northern Kyushu; Kyushu Geibunkan, an art and cultural centre in the city of Chikugo; and Fukutsu City’s World Heritage Site of the Sacred Island of Okinoshima and Associated Sites, featuring the Shimbaru-Nuyama Mounded Tomb Group.
