Olympic Torch Relay Rehearsal

Runners took part in a rehearsal for the Tokyo Olympic torch relay. One of them was actress and relay ambassador Satomi Ishihara. Each runner ran 200 meters with an unlit torch. About 500 officials from local governments across Japan inspected the event.

The relay is scheduled to begin on March 26 in Fukushima Prefecture and go through all 47 prefectures of Japan.
