Uzushio Kisen (うずしお汽船)

4.5

Pleasure Boat / Water Cruise

This tourist boat offers up-close views of the Naruto Strait whirlpools, which is counted as one of the world’s three fastest currents and said to be the world’s largest in size. The high-speed passenger boat operates out of Kameura Fishing Port, the closest port to the whirlpools. Trips take about 20 minutes. A shop located at the ticket counter offers a wide range of souvenirs including Naruto wakame, the local brand of brown edible seaweed; merchandise related to the popular “Shishamo-Neko” character; Setouchi-themed snacks; and Naruto Kintoki, a notable local sweet potato confection.

          The southeastern corner of Shikoku is home to Tokushima prefecture, a region celebrated for its luscious nature and the nation’s favorite Awa Odori, an energetic dance to which an annual summer festival has been dedicated. Keeping the upbeat tempo, whirlpools excite the Naruto sea off Tokushima, while inland, dramatic cliffs line the Iya Valley, promising unrivaled views of vast and vibrant scenery.
