TOKYO, APR 1 (IANS) | Publish Date: 4/1/2020 10:12:21 AM IST

The Olympic flame was handed over to officials in the Fukushima prefecture in a low-key ceremony on Wednesday. The flame will be on display in a lantern for the month of April in Fukushima after the Tokyo Olympics, and with it the torch relay, got postponed by a year due to the global crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“The lantern containing the Olympic flame will be on display from April 2 until April 30, 2020, with limited public viewing available,” said the organisers as per Olympics’ official website. The 121-day torch relay was due to start on March 26 from the J-Village due to its symbolism as being the focal point of Japan’s reconstruction following 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
