Olympic officials have postponed the Tokyo Games until next year with the opening now set for July 23, 2021.
Officials have not said where the flame will go at the end of the month.
The flame was to help put a focus on the region’s struggle to recover from the events nine years ago. However, the emphasis of the Olympics next year is likely to shift to the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
