Olympics Ambassadors attend an event to announce the torch relay route in Tokyo on June 1. (Mainichi)

Tokyo Olympics torch relay includes quake, tsunami-hit areas   

The Tokyo Olympics organizing committee said on June 1 the torch relay next year would pass through major Japanese landmarks, including World Heritage sites and areas devastated by natural disasters.

The torch will travel to all of Japan's 47 prefectures, highlighting symbols of reconstruction from the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, and the subsequent nuclear crisis.

About 10,000 torch bearers will participate over the 121-day relay.

The torch will pass through municipalities heavily hit by the disaster. It will begin on March 26, 2020, at Fukushima Prefecture's J-Village, a soccer training center that was once an operational base for dealing with the nuclear crisis.

On the first day, the torch will travel through Okuma, where one part of the crippled Fuku-shima nuclear plant is located.

The torch will also visit World Heritage sites designated by UNESCO, including Mount Fuji and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.

The flame will arrive at Tokyo's New National Stadium on July 24 during the opening ceremony. (AP)
