The Naruto whirlpools occur along the Shikoku coast and are created by the large volumes of water moving. After lunch, arrive Tokushima and visit Awa Odori Kaikan. The museum explains the history and attractiveness of Awa Odori, exhibitions of costumes and musical instruments used, but the main attraction is the actual Awa Odori performance.

This shrine is famous for its long stone steps. It is also visited by many fishermen and sailors here as it is also known as the guardian of the sea.(B/L/D)

Day 7:Takamatsu – Miyajima – Hiroshima

This morning, depart and visit the Ritsurin Garden. It is a landscape garden in Takamatsu City, built by the local feudal lords. Considered one of the best gardens in Japan, it is often suggested that it deserves a spot on the list of the “three most beautiful gardens of Japan”. Continue to the Great Seto Bridge. As an island nation, bridges play an integral part in Japan’s infrastructure. Of these bridges, the Great Seto Bridge is surely among the most impressive. It is actually a series of multiple bridges, but they connect together to make one amazing architectural creation. Afterward, proceed to Miyajima and visit the Itsukushima Shinto Shrine, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The shrine and its toril gate are unique for being built over water, seemingly floating in the sea during high tide. The shrine complex consists of multiple buildings, which are connected by boardwalks and supported by pillars above the sea. (B/L/D)

Before the bomb, the area of what is now the Peace Park was the political and commercial heart of the city. Four years after the bomb was dropped, it was decided that the area would not be redeveloped but instead devoted to peace memorial facilities. In contrast to other cultural heritage buildings, the Atomic Bomb Dome must be maintained in the exact state of destruction caused by the bomb. This is critical to understanding its relevance and importance as a World Heritage Site (B/L/D)
