Tokyo holds torch relay rehearsal ahead of the Olympics

Feb 15, 2020 16:18 IST

With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics round the corner, Japan hosted a dress rehearsal for the Torch Relay that took place in Hamura on Saturday. With an unlit torch in hand, Japanese actress, Satomi Ishihara, who is one of the official ambassadors for the torch relay had the honour of performing the first handover of the summer games in the official white uniform. The 121-day-long torch relay will witness 10,000 torchbearers who will carry the flame across Japan before arriving in Tokyo to light the Olympic flame on July 24th.
