Takeshi Tsuruno known for his iconic role as Asuka Shin / Ultraman Dyna had participated in Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay held today. Relays are held in multiple places in Japan and the one in which Takeshi Tsuruno participated was for Kanagawa prefecture. He was the last runner in the relay and because of that, he got the chance to light the torch plate.
Takeshi Tsuruno had commented, "The world is exhausted. I hope that this Olympic & Paralympic becomes the Hope". He had also done his Ultraman pose at the ceremony.
Due to the pandemic, there was no actual 'relay' on the roads. The flame was passed on from one participant to another on the stage.
There were also some other celebs who have participated in the ceremony. One of them includes Talent & Fashion Model Akina Minami who was cast of Cho Kamen Rider Den-O & Decade Neo Generations: The Onigashima Warship (2009).
