Lookout Landmark
See one of the most evocative and hypnotic phenomena in nature at Tokushima Prefectural Uzunomichi, an observatory offering sights of whirlpools in the Naruto Strait. Located on the second floor of a long bridge, the glass-floored observatory provides extensive views of the unusual natural phenomena, as well as the expertly engineered bridge itself. The strait between the main island and a lesser one has become well known for its whirlpools, the result of tidal currents. Learn about the science behind the natural sight, or just gaze in wonder at the almost magical sight.

Where to stay in Naruto

The largest selection of places to stay in Naruto concentrates around the main train station, with the central area spreading out across the river eastward to the coast. Business hotels occupy new-build blocks, some luxury options sit in older buildings, and guesthouses lie on the side streets of this convenient, central district. Luxury and standard beachfront hotels line the expressway to the north, all the way up to where the bridge crosses Naruto Strait.
