We had planned to see "Big Budda", who's real name is Kamakura. Once we looked at the map and realized how close Enoshima Island was to Kamakura, it was a no-brainer. We would see both in one day. It is well marked once you get close. Parking is very easy, and cheap. The beach was so different that it was... More

Very busy place but just wonder around and you will be able to find spots with less day visitors. Fun to try the local delicacies that are offered in the street leading to the temple.

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

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
