[Kyodo News, September 28] The Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games Organizing Committee announced on the 28th the schedule of the torch relay in each prefecture. The original plan was maintained, except for cooperating with the schedule of the conference, which was postponed until next summer due to the expansion of the new crown epidemic. The Olympic torch relay will be launched on March 25 next year at the football facilities J-Village (Naraha and Hirono) in Fukushima Prefecture. It will take 121 days to tour 859 municipalities in 47 prefectures across the country.
Approximately 10,000 torchbearers that have been finalized will be given priority to participate in the relay. The Olympic Organizing Committee stated that the delivery routes of various local governments and the celebration ceremonies held at the end of the day also maintain the original plan, but will be adjusted according to the actual conditions of various regions in the future. The torch will light the torch stand at the Tokyo National Arena at the opening ceremony on July 23.
For the Paralympic Games, from August 12th to 16th, the torch gathering will be held in 43 prefectures without venues. On the 17th, the collection and delivery began in Shizuoka, Chiba, and Saitama where there are stadiums. The torch from various places merged into one in Tokyo on the 20th, and passed through the city before the opening ceremony on the 24th. Torchbearers will be selected from the applicants.
对于残奥会，从8月12日至16日，火炬聚会将在43个州举行，而没有场地。 17日，收集和交鸭脖最新网站付开始于静冈，千叶和Sa玉的体育场。 20日，来自各地的火炬在东京合而为一，并在24日的开幕式之前穿过了整个城市。火炬手将从申请人中选拔。
In order to reduce the cost of the postponement of the conference, the Olympic Organizing Committee has also explored to shorten the torch relay schedule, but the local governments strongly expressed embarrassment and gave up. They will only reduce the number of fleets and staff, and adjust the decoration of the end celebration ceremony. The specific new crown countermeasures will be summarized in the future.
The Olympic torch was collected at the Olympia site in Greece, where the ancient Olympics were held, and shipped to Japan. However, on March 24 this year, it was decided to postpone the conference and the torch relay originally planned to be launched on the 26th was also suspended. The torch has been kept in Japan.
