The Naruto whirlpools (鳴門の渦潮, Naruto no Uzushio) are tidal whirlpools in the Naruto Strait, a channel between Naruto in Tokushima and Awaji Island in Hyōgo, Japan.
The strait between Naruto and Awaji island has a width of about 1.3 km. The strait is one of the connections between the Pacific Ocean and the Inland Sea, a body of water separating Honshū and Shikoku, two of the main islands of Japan.
At first I was wondering whether I should crop this, but I decided to leave it because it was interesting to see the different parts of the water; where the foreground was swirling and the water in the back is calm.
Taken with an Olympus FE-220 on August 16, 2007. It was my first time seeing an actual whirlpool and it was very cool. Too bad I wasn’t actually a “photographer” at the time; otherwise I would’ve tried harder to take a nice pic.
