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 Mie

The Mie leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Yokkaichi and will journey through the central south area of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Ise 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 Iga, travelling across the southern part of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Kumano for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Mie include: Ise Jingu Shrine in the city of Ise, embracing 2,000 years of history and culture in Japan; Ueno Park in the city of Iga, with its demonstration shows of Iga-style ninja art; the magnificent nature reflected in the 48 waterfalls of Akame in the city of Nabari; the city of Matsusaka, with its Edo period merchant mansions and streetscapes; and the World Heritage Site, Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes, including the Iseji route in the town of Kihoku.
