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

I love this island! It's small but it has so many attractions. I arrived a bit late in the day so I didn't have time to go to the caves, but I did have fun in the gardens, temples, and the rocks. I stayed at the deck of the Sea Candlelight to watch the sun set. And I love the... More

A short 90-minute ride will take you from Shinjuku to Enoshima. On a good day, you can see Mt Fuji!!! This is a place where you can casually, slowly spend a few hours. Walk up the hill, visit the temple and have lunch there. Then walk to the other side of the island where they have the cliff and the... More

Enoshima is a small offshore island, about 4 km in circumference, at the mouth of the Katase River, which flows into the Sagami Bay of Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. On the way to Enoshima on the Enoshima Electric Railway is Inamuragasaki, located 5 minutes' walk from Enoshima Electric Railway Inamuragasaki Station. From the observation deck on the cape, one can see... More

It's amazing for the beautiful coastal scenery. We may see Mt. Fuji so clearly in sunny days. If you know the local legend of the goddess and five-head dragon, may have more fun in your trip. The only pity thing is that the cave adventure is so emptiness.

During our stay in Tokyo, we wanted to see Mount Fuji but all the destinations like Hakone or Lake Kawaguchiko were kinda far except Kamakura, which was said to be around 1 hour away by train. Well, it took us around 1.5 hour though. There was a train from Kamakura to Enoshima but we decided to walk along the beach... More

We visited the Enoshima island the evening after a tour in Kamakura, and that's was really good. In a day, even in cold January, you can see all the beauty in this area at about one hour of train from Tokyo. I suppose that summer is the perfect time to visit the island, but climbing (with the escalators) to the... More

Make sure you take the Enoden train from Tokyo and get off when you see the beach on your left. Walk along the beach and over the bridge to access Enoshima Island. It's very touristy but very worthwhile. Walk up the main tourist street then through the wooded area at the top of the hill. There are beautiful views of... More
