March 24, 2020, the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee announced the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games due to the effects of a new coronavirus infection that is spreading throughout Japan and around the world.
As a result, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay was also cancelled, but this year, after the postponement, the torch is being carried across Japan.
The torch relay is scheduled to arrive in Yokosuka City on June 29.
The torch relay will start from Nobi at 11:15 a.m. on June 29, and then connect two places near Umikaze Park - Yokosuka Art Theater at around 12:15 p.m.
Unfortunately, we won't be able to watch the event while cheering, but those who live along the route can cheer from inside their homes.
