Tokushima Prefectural Uzunomichi, Naruto

(400+ reviews on the web)
Lookout
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.
