Japanese broadcaster NHK said that the flame, which arrived in Japan from Athens on March 20, will be on display in J-Villiage, Fukushima from April.

"The show will be managed carefully to avoid coronavirus spread," the report said. "It would be suspended should there is a big crowd."

The flame will be brought back to Tokyo but Tokyo 2020 has not decided where to keep it before the torch relay starts next year.
