And there’s a great location where they can be seen…
On Ōnaruto Bridge, just below the highway, there is a promenade called “Uzu no michi (the road of whirlpools)”.
A 450m stroll along the promenade in the refreshing sea breeze (45m above sea level) brings you to the observation gallery.
On the way, there is a rest station with 4 glass floors from where the violent tides can be seen… Beware those afraid of heights!
Like the promenade, the observation gallery also has 4 glass floors. But unlike the promenade, it’s right above the tidal whirlpools!!
Peering down… What a scene!!
The observation gallery also has a telescope with which distant ships can be viewed… A great ‘photo opportunity’ spot.
Anyone can enjoy this powerful experience, but there’s a timetable indicating when the large tidal whirlpools will be created. As it changes daily, please check the Uzunomichi website below!
