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 Ishikawa

The Ishikawa leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Kaga and will journey through the southern area of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Kanazawa 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 Wajima, travelling across the northern part of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Nanao for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Ishikawa include: one of the world’s most beautiful railway terminals, Kanazawa Station in the city of Kanazawa, featuring the stunning Tsuzumi Gate; and Chirihama Beach Driveway, the only road in Japan where you can drive directly on the beach.
