Enoshima is small but a nice place to visit on a day trip from Tokyo. Plenty of seafood restaurants on the island and a few scenic spots. Currently there is illumination display until mid January.

I bought a kamakura day pass that allowed me to travel around the area for free and decided to stop by Enoshima island in the evening (between 5pm and 8pm). It was extremely windy and dark on the walk from the station to the island (it was a bit scary, I'm not going to lie). Once we arrived to the... More

Enoshima Island is a fantastic place to get away from the mainland without getting too far away! Spend a few hours of the morning or afternoon walking up-and-down around the island, taking in some breathtaking views of the peninsula. There are shrines, a flower garden, observation tower, and beaches and caves, not to mention the plethora of restaurants and souvenir... More

Enoshima Island offers you to enjoy beautiful ocean views, a lot of shops and great seafood restaurants, historical Japanese Shinto Shrines, fishing, green and much more. I grew up in Tokyo and Enoshima is one of my very favorite places in Japan for these all years. What I want to introduce here is there is a sightseeing spot named Chigogafuchi(稚児ヶ淵)located... More

We included this island as part of our travel to Kamakura, it is nice to have a break after visiting all the Buddas and Shrines and temples in Kamakura. Connected by a bridge to the mainland. It is scenic, especially if you walk all the way up to the observation tower. The main street has all the shops that are... More

The odayku line dropped us right at the enterence. once we walk around and across to the other side, a boat ride took us back to the... More

We traveled from Shinjuku on Odakyu Line and arrived at Katase Enoshima Station just over an hour. We did not purchase the "Enoshima-Kamakura Free Pass" as we figured that one day was just not enough to tour the two places. We were right. We instead purchased "eno=pass" at Fujisawa City Tourist Center (1000 yen) and spent around six hours in... More

This island is connected by bridge, and many hawks flying above us. The island itself offer us many sightseeing and interesting things. For example like, flower garden, cave, temples, and beautiful view of sea from rock. I think this place is best for couple who wants to seek any place for dating. It is quite hard for old people since... More

If you are in Kamakura worth taking a train rie to Enoshima and walking along the bridge to the island. We did it around the sunset time so had some beautiful pictures with sun setting over the water. Lovely place gives you an impression what japanese beach towns are like, but it is not a beach commonly used for sunbathing... More
