 Miyoshi is Japan's well-kept secret where the beautiful nature has been left untouched. Cross the "Kazurabashi" suspension bridge that overlooks the mountain stream of Iya River to experience Japan's raw nature.

 World's biggest whirlpools occur in Seto Inland Sea's Naruto Strait. Watch this phenomenon from the Onaruto Bridge that connects Naruto of Tokushima prefecture and Awaji Island of Hyogo prefecture or take a ride on the tide watching cruise. A famous Japanese anime is based on the Naruto Strait Whirlpools.
The whirlpools appear during high and low tides, but they are most powerful during the low tides of Spring and Autumn.

Iya Soba

 "Iya Soba" is the local specialty of the Iya area in Miyoshi.
Made from secluded Iya's pure waters and local soba flour, it is known for the noodles, which are thicker and shorter than normal soba. When you take a bite, the aroma of the soba fills your mouth and the simple texture makes the it very enjoyable to eat.
