About this sight

Arguably the most well-known attraction of Ehime prefecture is the Kurushima Strait Whirlpools: the naturally occurring water phenomenon created by salt currents in the water. Located in the center of the Seto Inland Sea that links the Kansai route and the Kyushu route in the middle, the Kurushima Strait is an important point of the sea voyage between the islands.
