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.

Uzu no Michi Reviews
外に出なくても気軽に渦潮をウォッチングできる貴重な施設。中心部に行くまで結構歩く。床の透明な小窓から可愛い渦潮を見ることができて感動。終始、潮風が強く、迫力満点。 more »This is a valuable facility where you can watch the whirlpool without having to go outside. I walk quite a bit until I get to the center. I was impressed to be able to see a cute whirlpool tide from the transparent small window of the floor. From beginning to end, the sea breeze is strong and powerful.
ずっと渦が巻いているわけではなく、風の影響で海に渦が発生します。なので、発生場所もまちまち、いろいろなところに渦ができます。船で見る方もいますが、かなり酔うと思います。渦の道のりは長く階段もあるので、足腰の弱い方はきついと思います。車椅子もありますが、行きつくまでに坂と階段があります。そこまで車で行けるかもしれませんが…停めるところはないので、運転の方はその道のりを通るのは止むを得ません。帽子、メ... more »The whirlpool is not rolled for a long time, and the whirlpool is generated in the sea by the influence of the wind. Therefore, the place where it occurs is various, and the whirlpool can be done in various places. Some people watch it on the ship, but I think it gets quite drunk. Because the road of the whirlpool is long and there are stairs, I think that the one with a weak lower back is tight. There is a wheelchair, too, but there are slopes and stairs by the time i get there. I might be able to get there by car. There is no place to stop, so the driver can't stop going down that road. Please be careful because the hat and glasses may be blown off.
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.
