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 Tokushima

The Tokushima leg of the Torch Relay begins in the western town of Higashimiyoshi in Miyoshi City, making its way to the city of Naruto, famous for the whirling current of Naruto Strait, where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave the southern town of Kaiyo, taking in the rich nature of the prefecture’s sea and mountains and arriving in the city of Tokushima, home to the Awa-odori Dance, for a celebration. The events on both days will feature a colourful “Awa culture” celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Tokushima include: the bridges over Yoshino River that inspired Tokushima to be called the “museum of bridges”; and the Doll Culture Exchange Hall in the town of Katsuura, venue of the “Awa Katsuura Big Hina Dolls Festival”.
