The magnificent whirlpools in the Naruto Straits can be enjoyed from several vantages. One option is the observatory built below the Naruto Bridge, offering a variety of views through glass viewing panels from a height of 45m above the sea. For an up-close and personal view of the whirlpools, why not try taking a ride on one of the regular sightseeing boat trips available?
