Once we are settled in, the bus will depart towards Tokushima, in a journey of approximately 2 hours until the first stop.

First stop: Naruto Whilpoors, a speedboat will take us to the point where the waters meet which, due to the relief, cause the natural phenomenon of whirlpools just below the bridge that connects the island of Awajishima to the island of Shikoku.
Back to the land, the bus will take us to the next stop.

Second stop: Awaodori Hall. In the hall, we will be able to learn more about the history behind the Awaodori dance and we will have the opportunity to see a rehearsal and participate in it, thus learning to dance with the local people.

Lunch Time.
After lunch, the bus we'll take us to our third stop.

Third stop: Oku-Iya Double Vine Bridges.The bridges are associated with the Heike Clan who took refuge in the Iya Valley after their defeat by the Minamoto Clan in the Genpei War of 1180–1185. Construction with the thick vines that grow in the surrounding forests made them strong enough for daily use. *You don’t need to cross the bridge if you are afraid, if you want to cross it, a symbolic fee of 550 yen is charged.
From the bridge, the bus we'll take us to our guesthouse (the guesthouse belongs to the rafting company and that will make it easier for us for the journey the next day).

We will be arriving at the guesthouse around 5 pm
