The Naruto Whirlpools

Locating in the northeast of Tokushima Prefecture, Shikoku Japan, Naruto was one of prosperous cities close to Kobe and Osaka since the ancient time before the bridges across the Seto Inland Sea were built in the 80s. It is famous for the whirlpools formed in the Naruto strait, red seabreams, sweet potatoes, and as an entry point to the 88 Temple Pilgrimage route.
