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 Kanagawa

The Kanagawa leg of the Torch Relay begins in the town of Hakone, ending the first day in Fujisawa, the second in Sagamihara and the third in Yokohama, with a celebration taking place at the end of each day.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Kanagawa include: Mt. Oyama in the city of Isehara, popular among hikers and recognised as a Japan heritage site; Enoshima, the venue for the Olympic and Paralympic sailing competitions; and the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine in the centre of the ancient city of Kamakura. In Yokohama City, the Torch Relay will pass by International Stadium Yokohama, the Olympic football competition venue; Yokohama Stadium, where the baseball and softball competitions will be held; and other locations typical of Yokohama, which is celebrating the 160th anniversary of the opening of its port.
