Kawaguchi Aokicho Park

Time Out says

The starting point of Saitama's leg of the 2020 Olympic torch relay, this park features a rather curious monument: a 2.6-ton cauldron cast to hold the Olympic flame at the 1964 Tokyo Games but rejected because it didn't meet the required specifications. While initially seen as a failure, it's now considered a symbol of Kawaguchi's industrial history.
