  •  Whirlpool Road station is a station located at the foot of the great Naruto bridge, at the southern end of Awaji island.  As you look at the map's southernmost part is thin, so parking is heavily fragmented and finally found a space. Views are spectacular. Close-up look at the ohnaruto bridge and Boardwalk descend toward the foot of a large Naruto bridge from Station Road.  You could see how ocean currents strongly flowing under the bridge, could not confirm until the State has wrapped up. Another is the specialty here "Awaji island onionbeefburger". I couldn't eat because we were soon afterwards won the nationwide local burgergrampli Burger seems to.

  •  When I went for my whirlpools we didn't have the (tide is good.) sea river was flowing pretty quickly.  You can reach under the onaruto bridge and go down the stairs. But hang in there because there are stairs.

  • As the name suggests looks well whirlpool restaurant. Because the parking lot is small so the wait during the good times, but before the No. 2 car can be parked there, and so will the Pistons see it faster. Whirlpool restaurant is a little expensive but well whirlpool is seen from the large glass.

  • Has a nice walk down to the sea under the Naruto bridge. Also is home to the famous Awaji burger shop which has won several, national awards. Was incredibly busy when we visited during Golden Week so the line for the burgers was long which kind of soured me against them. They were good but not great. The shop offers a lot of souvenir choice for local produce but is all quite expensive (as all michinoeki are). Nice place to stop off for a quick look around if you're in the area and a good place to leave your car and go for a bike ride.
  • Just great view of sun setting and great panorama for taking photos of Onaruto bridge. Take a rest a while.!
  • the best place ever to watch whirling tides!
  • From track and field to see Naruto Strait's general view from the ship, but then here is the best. The best device to Pacific tide, especially from inland. If the air is so clean, Wakayama-hinomisaki views 360 degrees panorama from shodoshima Cape in Tokushima, Kagawa. Saturdays 13-15 are the volunteer guides.

  • The balance of the number of visitors and guests, parking, the holidays are always crowded will. Also a lot of souvenirs, good food white Bowl and Awaji island Burger and egg pudding, seafood products and plants looking fabulous, well I'm sorry but there. W be helpful by the way the bike parking lot waiting for traffic (guards will direct "do not") get off the sorry but I earnestly, however other cars or find with care to avoid accidents and pedestrian.
