Follow the Torch flame

The Olympic flame tradition dates back to the ancient Olympic Games in Greece, where a sacred flame burned at the altars of various gods. It first appeared as part of the modern Olympic tradition in 1928, at the Amsterdam Games, but it wasn’t until 1936 that the lighting ceremony and torch relay were added.

On March 12, 2020, the Olympic flame was lit in Olympia without the presence of spectators. The Greek leg of the torch relay was canceled as a precaution against COVID-19.

In Kanagawa Prefecture, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay will begin in Hakone Town, with celebrations in Fujisawa City on Day 1, Sagamihara City on Day 2, and Yokohama City on Day 3. The relay’s highlights will include Mt. Oyama in Isehara City, which has been designated as a Japan Heritage Site.
