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 Tottori
The Tottori leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Sakaiminato, the centre of “Manga Kingdom Tottori”. From there, it will journey through the western area of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Kurayoshi 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 Kotoura, travelling across the central and eastern parts of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Tottori for a celebration.
Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Tottori include: the magnificent view of the beautiful Mt. Daisen, also known as “Hoki-Fuji”; hot spring towns and historical scenery along the “old road”; and Japan’s largest scale Tottori sand dune.
