Enosis island is a nice walk across the bridge while Mt Fuji is on the horizon. There are shops and restaurants and a shrine. We went up the tower and walked through the flower gardens. It was cloudy and rainy so. It a good view of Fuji that day. Nice day trip and there is a beach as well.

I was hoping to find some relax and refresh in a very hot summer day. What I have found instead is an horrible small dirty beach and oily water. The pictures you find in Internet are old or retouched.

The view is nothing less than spectacular. The walks are long and occasionally might feel endless. But tiring your legs is definitely worth it for the beautiful scenery the island has to offer. Best time to explore is before dawn so you'll be in time to catch the sunset. Highly recommended for those who's into tranquility and admiring breath taking... More

Enoshima is about 1& half hours from Tokyo by train, and is a great spot to explore if you’re looking for a day trip. There are two different train lines that can take you to Enoshima- one is Odakyu Line (Katase Enoshima Station) and the other one if Enoden Line. Enoshima is just a short ride from Kamakura- one of... More

We had the island to ourselves and walked all around it in tranquillity and before the heat. Can get terrific views of Mt Fuji on the bridge if conditions are right.

This was a day trip from Yokohoma and was worth it. We walked and saw the temples and caves of the dragon king. We saw the sunset over the mountains from a cafe. We even saw the tortoise rock! It was very tiring but a beautiful day out that showed yet another side of Japan and it's history.

Enoshima island is a wonderful place to spend the day with your family. Just before getting on the island, there is a great aquarium that opens from 9am. There is a beach that has food vendors in the months of July and August and if you are up for trying windsurfing, paddle boarding or surfing, there are plenty of rental... More

Great place that combines temples with views and ocean breezes. Very busy in weekends, best come early or on weekdays. From Tokyo, train the Tokaido line to Ofuna and switch to the Shonan Monorail for an exiting approach! On the way back you can take the local line to Fujisawa and change to Tokaido line again Or, combine with Kamakura... More

It's a really beautiful island with a wonderful spa and great scenery to take pictures at! The food there may be a little pricey but it's worth a try :)
