Tokushima Prefectural Uzunomichi, Naruto

4.0
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.

  • Watch the whirling tides while walking the road entrance of the Vortex from 400 meters to the tip. Whirling tides always seen walking so far are all "skeleton! "Instead, in some places by about one meter square glass skeleton. Kobe Awaji Naruto Expressway using the Eddy Street, was built in over the sea. So don't protect people naturally strong wind and wind of this wall, see the whirling tides from without walls, seen from the skeleton of the foot well. Either detest watching from a high place, feet already. Fine wind is strong, so if you do coat! Whirling tides occur in tide because time check is also required.

  • You can go to really bridge immediately beneath the long way and looks of whirlpools. This glass-roofed places a break point, always look under the spherical point. Not afraid of heights, but I really, scared, absolutely cannot walk on the glass-. Because the distance is surprisingly thrilling sky!
