The Olympic flame will be on public display at the Japan Olympic Museum in Tokyo, as of 1 September. The lantern was delivered during a special ceremony prepared by the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee. It will remain there until 1 November.

“There was a lot of drama surrounding the delivery of the Olympic flame, but we overcame various difficulties, just as track athletes must clear hurdles, and now it is on display here,” said Tokyo 2020 President Mori Yoshiro. “The flame will be carried in turn by about 10,000 torchbearers next year; we will use it to ignite the cauldron at the Opening Ceremony and ensure the Tokyo 2020 Games are a great success. We will continue to work closely with all parties concerned to prepare for safe and secure Games.”

Following the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Games, the Olympic flame will be spending a record amount of time in the host country. The flame was lit in Ancient Olympia earlier this year and travelled from Greece to Japan; this display will be a valuable opportunity to further share the Olympic ideals while raising awareness about the Tokyo 2020 Games.
