Occurring in the Naruto Straight, a small channel of water between Naruto and Awaji Island, the Naruto Whirlpools are the fast and largest in Japan, and among the largest in the world. Immortalized in Ukiyo-e prints, these whirlpools remain a popular attraction for tourists to the Seto Inland Sea and are visible from ships crossing the strait, or from any point on the Naruto Bridge which spans it. Please note that parking is not permitted on the bridge.
