Naruto Whirling Waves, Shikoku

3.4
#12 of 101 in Nature in Shikoku
Observe the churning waters at Naruto Whirling Waves, where the Pacific meets the Inland Sea with intense consequences. View things from above on the suspension bridge spanning the strait, or get a little closer with a boat ride. In the whirlpools here, waters travel at speeds peaking at 20 km/h (12 mph), creating vortices up to 20 m (66 ft) in diameter. Consider paying a little more on the boat for much better views of the action from the top deck.
