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 Hokkaido

The Hokkaido leg of the Torch Relay begins in Hakodate, making its way to Upopoy National Ainu Museum and Park in Shiraoi, 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 Tomakomai, travelling through the town of Atsuma where the 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi earthquake caused serious damage, and arriving at the Kita 3-jo Plaza in Sapporo City.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Hokkaido include: the beautiful city of Hakodate with its historical architecture; the naturally beautiful Lake Toya, Lake Onuma and Furano; and Obihiro Horse Race Track, venue of the world’s only “Banei” horse races.
