Places of interest in Chiba

For the Chiba Prefecture Paralympic Flame Festival, all 54 cities, towns and villages throughout the prefecture will carry out a flame lighting using their own unique method. All the flames will then be combined as one at the flame gathering ceremony which will be held at "Ichihara Suporeku Park", a sports facility with an excellent global reputation that is frequently used as a training camp by overseas sports teams and delegations participating in international competitions.

The Torch Relay will then will take place in Chiba City, a competition venue for the Paralympic Games, followed by the departure ceremony where the flame will be sent off to Host City Tokyo. With many people including young children, students and people with an impairment participating, the regional flame celebrations and Torch Relay will give everyone an opportunity to think about diversity and a fully-inclusive society.
