Governor Koike’s comments

The detailed route of the Olympic Torch Relay through Tokyo, which will cap off the torch relay, has been announced. The flame, having traveled across Japan, will arrive in Tokyo and depart on the next leg of its journey from Komazawa Olympic Park, a legacy of the previous Olympic Games held in Tokyo in 1964. The torch relay will be conducted in all Tokyo municipalities, finishing at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Through the torch relay, which will visit wonderful locations in Tokyo, we will show the world our city’s diverse attractions. Having as many people as possible cheer along the route and take part in the various ceremonies, we will channel the wishes of all of the people of Japan into the Games and build momentum.
