Naruto City, which looks out on the Strait of Naruto, known for whirlpools, is located at the northeastern tip of Tokushima. Linked with Tokushima, Awaji-shima Island, and Honshu by O-Naruto-kyo Bridge and Akashi Kaikyo (Strait) Bridge, Naruto is a gateway to Shikoku.
The biggest attraction in Naruto is the whirlpools in the Naruto Strait. The phenomenon occurs when opposing currents from the Seto Inland Sea and the Kii Channel meet in the Naruto Strait with a water level difference of as much as 1.5 meters, which is made by the ebb and flow of the tide. At the time of the flood tide in the spring through the fall, huge whirlpools running at 20 kilometers an hour and that exceed 20 meters in diameter occur. You can see these roaring whirlpools and surging currents from a tide-viewing boat, one of the Senjojiki observation platforms in Naruto Park, or the top of Escahill Naruto.
The place where you can look down at the dynamic swirls from right above is the Tokushima Prefectural Uzu-no-michi (Path of the Whirlpool) Promenade.
