The Olympic flame has begun its journey across Japan, after a year-long delay caused by the global pandemic. This relay will be traveling through all 47 prefectures. It kicked off this morning in the northeastern prefecture of Fukushima. Officials at the departure ceremony said they hope to showcase the region's recovery and the people's will to overcome the pandemic.

Tokyo 2020 President Hashimoto Seiko said, he hopes the Olympic flame of the Tokyo Games will light up hopes around Japan one by one with its sacred, powerful and warm shine.

The 121-day journey is scheduled to end at the national stadium in Tokyo on July 23, just in time for the Opening Ceremonies.
