Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. This time I would like to share our trip to Naruto whirlpools.
Naruto Whirlpool Boat Ride!
Naruto whirlpools can be seen in the Naruto strait which is between Tokushima Prefecture and Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture. And this Naruto whirlpool watching is one of the most popular activities in Naruto City. FYI, there’s no relation to Naruto anime by the way. Hehe.
It is quite overwhelming. I felt we’d get dragged!
Setonaikai National Park Naruto
You could see nice views of the Ōnaruto Bridge at the Setonaikai National Park Naruto. I recommend to stop by since it’s near by the boat ride area. This is also an ideal place for getting souvenirs.
How do you find it? It was absolutely worth a visit. If you happen to visit Tokushima please stop by and enjoy the ride. (^v^)v
See you around!
Buon giorno! It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. This time I would like to share things to do in Miyoshi City, Tokushima Prefecture.
Top Things to Do in Miyoshi City, Tokushima
Miyoshi City is full of nature which we, the Wadas appreciate the most. One of our favorite places Kazurabashi (introduced by Mrs. Wada) is in Miyoshi City as well. Let’s start with it with more photos!
Kazurabashi Suspension Bridge
Kazurabashi is a suspension bridge made of ivy. It looks scary but durable enough to hold numbers of people at once. To be honest I AM frightened of height but this is quite enjoyable.
Iya river runs right below the Kazurabashi bridge. Even in summer, water is cold enough to cool down all the heat. Why not take off shoes and go soak your feet?
Lunch at Iya Bjin
Iya Bijin is a ryokan (Japanese style hotel) and also serves food at its restaurant with great views of Iya valley! It’s not far from the Kazurabashi bridge. It’d be nice to stop by for slurping some noodles, wouldn’t it?

Iya Valley and The Statue of the Peeing Boy
This statue stands in the middle of the Iya valley. A little hard to access (though accessible by car or local bus) but surroundings are really nice (a perfect photo spot). Worth a visit while in Iya area.

Boat ride is another way to enjoy the nature. Some places offer rafting but if you prefer something slow (like we do), this would be it. It goes like for a half hour. No reservation needed.
How do you find it? Nature has got a lot to offer huh? I would like to go back sometime and explore more.
See you around!
