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 Kagawa

The Kagawa leg of the Torch Relay begins in the town of Utazu and will journey through the western area of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Kanonji 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 Sakaide, travelling across the eastern part of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Takamatsu for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Kagawa include: Marugame Castle that boasts the highest stone wall in Japan; the popular scenic photo spot, Chichibugahama Beach, where the sky is reflected on the mirror-like water; and Seto Ohashi Bridge, the world’s largest bridge serving both a vehicle road and a railway.
