After the hustle and bustle of city living for a week, we decided to undertake a day trip to the seaside and experience 'real Japan'. We travelled from Koto to Kamakura which was a bit of a nightmare as the Japanese travel system is so so confusing but we got there in the end. At Kamakura, we purchased a day... More

This island is a great place for a walk or to spend the day. The sea candle is worth entering, giving a tremendous view of the area. There are many restaurants, temples, and shrines and caves to explore.

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

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
