Tokushima Prefectural Uzunomichi, Naruto

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.

  • Walk longer than expected to feel the wind from the sea through the lattice, feel considerably colder winter visit. For this reason, cold weather and is required. I knew when you visit that you can see in the spring and fall relatively large whirlpools. But could look for high tide to the small whirlpools, was lucky.

  • Watch large Eddy was going to ride on the boat, but until then let's look at from the top first in their spare time and I came. Parking is 500 yen, and walked from there 5 minutes up and down before finally entrance so that attention is required. And look into the Vortex appears beneath the glass, as well as walking on glass is a thrill!

  • Whirlpools went to see check the hours because it is said that the time of low tide and high tide is especially good, but look at posters and guidebooks looks into the vortex of the washing machine is in fact "something like this? "And feel a subdued. However, passage appears under parts and thrill. Because of bad weather and enjoyed them cold. Weather permitting the scenery around the best I guess.

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.
