The Olympic flame reached Japan without any joyous celebration due to the coronavirus outbreak that leaves Tokyo Games in jeopardy. The flame was brought on a special charter flight to Matsushima Air Base in Japan’s Miyagi, a part of the “Recovery Olympics” to show it’s revival after the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown. Former Japanese Olympians Saori Yoshida and Tadahiro Nomura received the flame.
