Naruto Whirlpools, Shikoku

3.8
#10 of 98 in Nature in Shikoku
Observe the churning waters at Naruto Whirlpools, 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.

  • I think you had better go check the tide times before. The Vortex can be seen anytime in it seems. Nice to know more tidal power, think clean.

  • Day, was no less Vortex or power was okay. I think it should either go picking dates in the tide table once and seems want to whirl round.

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.
