After a year-long delay, traversing 46 prefectures over 106 days, the Olympic flame has finally arrived in Tokyo; the flame will embark on a two-week tour around the city before it will be used to light the Olympic Cauldron at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 on 23 July 2021.

The Olympic flame has arrived in Tokyo for the final two weeks of its 120-day relay around all 47 prefectures of Japan.

Travelling under the banner, “Hope Lights Our Way”, the flame was welcomed at a ceremony at the Komazawa Olympic Park Stadium, a venue built for the Olympic Games Tokyo 1964.

         The Olympic Torch Relay will now tour the capital for two weeks before its journey ends on 23 July, when it will be used to light the Olympic Cauldron during the Opening Ceremony at Tokyo's Olympic Stadium.
