The Otsuka Museum of Art offers scheduled guided tours, but they are conducted only in Japanese. I will guide you through the highlights in English. And Naruto is famous for its whirlpools, and the most impactful way to experience the power of the whirlpools is undoubtedly by boat. During the boat ride, I will provide explanations in English about the mechanism behind the formation of whirlpools. My car is a mini car and it seats 4 people (3 besides me).

Tokushima Tour Reviews

Memorable experience

We travelled Japan for 3 weeks from Tokyo to Hiroshima via Shikoku and the most memorable part of our trip was the walk of 88 Pilgrimage route with Masami. We also asked her to include the visit to a sake brewery on the way and it was quite interesting. Highly recommendable off-the-beaten-track tour ! Thanks Masami !

A K.

Thank you very much for the high evaluation of my tour guide. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed it. If you have another opportunity to visit Japan, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.
