Before the opening, you can feel Olympic
Even if your stay in Japan is just before the opening of Olympic, you can maybe have an Olympic feeling by watching the Olympic torch relay.
You can visit the special display of the “Flame of Recovery” in Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima (20.03.-25-03. check the schedule). After this special display, the torch relay is going to start in Fukushima on the 26.03. The torch relay is going to run though all 47 prefectures in Japan. It is going to end on the 24.07. in Tokyo.
Some events and a photo contest are scheduled, so before the opening you can feel an Olympic fever in advance.
