Tokyo Olympic torch relay to start on March 25 in Fukushima Pref via Japan Today


The relay will start from the J-Village soccer training center and last for 121 days while traversing all of Japan’s 47 prefectures. The previous schedule for each region was maintained aside from a one-day adjustment to fit next year’s calendar.

The Olympics are slated to open on July 23 next summer followed by the Paralympics on Aug 24.

Approximately 10,000 runners who had already been selected will be given priority for the nationwide relay. Organizers said they will stick with the local routes and events that were already planned in principle but may make future adjustments according to the status of each region.

The Paralympic torch relay will be held in August.

Organizers had been seeking to shorten the torch relay schedule in order to reduce swelling costs caused by the games’ delay but abandoned the idea after receiving strong disapproval from local governments already banking on the event.

As a result, only reducing the size of the vehicle convoys, staff and pageantry of some of the events connected to the relay are under review as potential areas for cost cutting and streamlining the games.


The flame has remained in the host country since and is currently on public display at the Japan Olympic Museum near the main stadium for the games in central Tokyo until Nov. 1.

    If you’re wondering what should I do if my son is on the dark web, there are a couple of things that you can do. If you are just new to the world of the internet and don’t have much knowledge of how the web works, then it’s best to find a reputable web directory that offers reverse-search services, such as Intelius or Reverse Phone Detective. These directories not only offer information about who owns the phone numbers that are displayed, but more importantly they will tell you how they got the information in the first place. For example, if a spammer found his way onto your computer and got online through a link on a junk email message, he may very well have gotten into your computer through these links. It’s important to be aware of this so that you don’t pass up any opportunities for stopping the spammer. Many sites will let you search for someone’s information with their particular service.
