Tokushima Prefectural Uzunomichi, Naruto
(4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Sometimes the feet to look to, there was just a little thrill. And bad times, Eddy found that the high degree of transparency of the sea is beautiful and helpful.

  • According to people that clean the pedestrian bridge at high tide than at low tide time is likely to see. Ebb tide is the best. The pictures in the brochure is right in this time. I was at high tide. You can watch the tide, but the Vortex is pretty much invisible. Looks are only the few spectator boats and small Eddy. A windswept observation deck, including, so go out with warm clothing (windbreaker). Will go to after dinner and after dinner stroll. Toilets are also located in Observatory (farthest from the entrance).

  • Excellent, I recommend! Has glass floor to observe the phenomenon of nature to 45 m. Have boats, museums too. Located below the Onaruto Bridge, modern and secure structure.
