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 Yamanashi

The Yamanashi leg of the Torch Relay begins in the southwestern town of Nambu. From there, it will pass through the northwestern city of Hokuto with its spectacular views of Mt. Yatsugatake, making its way to the city of Kofu where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave from the city of Fuefuki, travelling past the vineyards in Koshu City and arriving in the city of Fujiyoshida for a celebration.

Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Yamanashi include: Mt. Fuji, inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2013; the beautiful mountain ranges of the Southern Alps and Yatsugatake; the rich forests that cover around 80 percent of the prefecture; and the prefecture’s scenic vineyards, recognised as a Japan heritage site.
