The Olympic torch is finally set to make its way across Japan next month.

The traditional relay will kickoff in Fukushima before it travels through other parts of the country.  

Fans are allowed to come and watch the beginning of the relay, but cheering is banned.

The relay was canceled last year because of the pandemic. The delayed games are supposed to begin in July.
