The coast and mountains of this area have long inspired travelers
Vistas of sea, mountains and islets have beckoned pilgrims, artists and travelers for many years. Setonaikai National Park attracts those who want to explore the cultural and active side of this park. It's known for the Shimanami Kaido—a bridge for cyclists to cross the Inland Sea—the Benesse Art Site Naoshima and the Setouchi Triennale.
The park is famous for its whirlpools at the Naruto Strait, which you can see up close in an observation boat.
