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.

Need to check for the tide timings for the best time to view the whirlpools. Also, the small boat is the best for experiencing the force of the whirlpools, and the spray from the sea. However, I think from the bridge, it’s a better view. It’s a good experience.
Interesting sight. Be sure to check the schedule for the optimal viewing period
