The source of inspiration for the famous cartoon character, Uzumaki Naruto, the Naruto Whirlpools are tidal pools that occur along the Shikoku coast of the Naruto Straits.

Although one can admire the whirlpools from the Uzu-no-Michi Walkway, what could compare with encountering the whirlpools right before your very eyes on a “Wonder Naruto” boat tour? Read on to find out what you can expect from this boat tour.
Long regarded as the Island of Gods on the clear waters of the Seto Inland Sea, Miyajima—an island just off the coast of Hiroshima—is one of the top three scenic spots in Japan which is home to the floating Itsukushima Shrine and O-Torii Gate.
Both the Itsukushima Shrine and O-Torii Gate carry religious significance to the Japanese and the former has been dedicated to the worship of the three daughters of Susano-o no Mikoto—Shinto god of the seas and storms. The Itsukushima Shrine and O-Torii Gate were also built over water so as to protect the purity of these religious sites.
Normally visited as a day trip from Hiroshima, a day full of adventure and discovery awaits you on Miyajima. This is one island that you must visit once in your life.
