The dynamic whirlpools and the variety of panoramic views of the sea


Naruto City, a port city facing the Seto Inland Sea and the Pacific Ocean, is located in the northeast of Tokushima Prefecture, and has long prospered from fishing and shipping industries related to the sea. The tidal whirlpools of Naruto Strait, a result of one of the three fastest currents in the world, have become a symbol of Tokushima and attract many tourists. 
 
On this tour, you will use a rental bicycle to visit various spots in Naruto City where you can feel the charm of the sea in a single day. 
Surrounded by land on all sides, the Uchinoumi Sea offers peaceful seascapes. 
In the Naruto Strait, you will board a cruise ship to see the whirlpools up close, and enjoy the dynamic charms of the sea. 
In addition, there are many other things to see and do in Naruto City, such as riding a ferry boat used by the locals on a daily basis, and tasting local food sourced from the nearby Naruto Sea. 
 
Come with us to feel the nature of the sea, and the life of the people who live with it!

You can also enjoy panoramic view of the Naruto Strait from here. 
・Uzumi Chaya: This restaurant serves dishes made with locally harvested sea bream and wakame (seaweed). You can savour your meal while looking out the window at the spectacular view of the Naruto Strait. At the souvenir shop, which has an old-fashioned appearance, you can also buy themed and local souvenirs. 
・Uzushio Kisen: A cruise ship from which you can see the whirlpools of Naruto. As the boat moves into the Naruto Strait, the powerful whirlpools start to appear before your eyes. Feel the flow of the tide, and enjoy taking pictures of this scenery, unique to here. 
・Okazaki Tosadomari Ferry Terminal: These boats, used by the locals for commuting and shopping, will make you feel like a resident of Naruto.
