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 .

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Definitely agree with other reviewers: check the tide schedule BEFORE you make the trip. Otherwise, you're wasting your time.
