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 Okinawa

The Okinawa leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Naha and will journey towards the northern part of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Nago 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 Tomigusuku, travelling across the central southern part of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Itoman for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Okinawa include: Shurijo Castle, a World Heritage Site in the city of Naha; Nanjo’s Nirai Kanai Bridge, meaning “a utopia on the other side of the ocean”; the road cutting through the ocean in the city of Uruma, where the drive offers a lovely view of the emerald blue water on both sides of the road.
