These caves are located on the for end of Enoshima island. There is a nice walk up and over the island that takes you through a narrow shopping street where you can get a meal, snack or souvenirs.

This was the only real letdown on Enoshima. This is a manmade cave with random, seemingly unrelated, poorly identified "artifacts" lined up in a few spots and a cheap, plastic-looking dragon at one end. There is nothing authentic here. The "display" of blue Christmas lights strung across a pool of water being used to demonstrate phosphorescent sea creatures should have... More

If you like caves, have never been in one, or you're visiting with little kids who might be impressed, the Enoshima caves are fine, but these caves are small. It's been a while since I've been there, so I may be remembering incorrectly, but the time you can spend there is 20 minutes max. There isn't that much to see.

Admission fees is included in the Enoshima Pass, total 2 caves. The first cave is bigger & darker so they'll provide candle for visitors so be careful of ur head, stone statues on the left & right route for visitors to see. 2nd cave is smaller n brighter so no candles required, only consist of a dragon statue

It is ok experience because of the historical sites, but it is not really a "caving exploring" experience. At some point, they give to the visitors some candle to walk in the darker areas. That was a nice touch.
