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 Nagasaki

The Nagasaki leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Minamishimabara, making its way to the city of Nagasaki where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave the town of Nagayo, arriving in the city of Sasebo for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Nagasaki include: the remote islands of Tsushima, Iki and Goto; the Kashiragashima Church in Shinkamigoto, registered as a World Heritage Site; and Shimabara Castle in the city of Shimabara, featuring grand architecture in the style of the early Edo Era. The Torch Relay will also visit historical sites such as the Peace Park in Nagasaki City.
