This charming island has been dubbed in some recent English articles as one of Japan's eleven 'Cat Islands' and is a 90 minute train ride from Tokyo (get Odakyu line from Shinjuku to Fujisawa/Odawara/Enoshima). From the Enoshima station it's a pleasant 15 minute walk. I went here mainly to see the cats and wasn't disappointed. There are dozens of strays... More

Can walk 10 minutes from Enoshima train station, it's good to explore around the island and you can see their shrines, caves, and the famous sea candle tower which is the highest point on the island. Half day for the island will be good enough~

This is a peaceful and green place. We dropped by there on our way to Daibutsu. We only visited until the Shrine and the viewpoint. We felt like we are exposed to true Japanese culture there and we love it.

Visited this nice and calm small town in Kamakura. We can have great view of the Pacific Ocean and Mt Fuji. For an escape from the hectic Tokyo, this place is worth the visit. There are several unique cafes on the beach front that i unfortunately can't visit.

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.
