Uzu no Michi, Naruto

4.0
See one of the most evocative and hypnotic phenomena in nature at Uzu no Michi, 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. Put Uzu no Michi on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Naruto road trip planning website .

  • I thought that I could see the whirlpool at any time, but it was a convenient thought of my own. Let's examine the day and time when the whirlpool occurs thoroughly.

  • This is a sea trip built in the bridge girder of the Onaruto Bridge over Naruto Strait (under the driveway). From the P1 parking lot, follow the signs and walk along the slope to reach the entrance in about 5 minutes. Pay the entrance fee and go to the vortex road. Both sides are fenced, so the wind is pleasant. The promenade is 450m. Looking left and right in the scenery of Naruto Strait, from the glass floor set up in four places on the way, you can look at the whirlpool of Naruto Strait 45m below. (I was afraid to stand on the glass floor (sweat)) The folding point is a corridor and you can see the whirlpool from various angles. There was a sightseeing boat just. It takes about 45 minutes to visit here slowly, and it is recommended that you check the whirlpool level on the web before you visit.

  • Naruto Whirlpool is the main attraction here, if don't want to get wet... come here, and experience walking the bridge 😉
  • Definitely agree with other reviewers: check the tide schedule BEFORE you make the trip. Otherwise, you're wasting your time.
