Half day in Enoshima

Spent half day in Enoshima by taking train on Odakyu line...what a beautiful island. Since the weather was pretty good, we could even see Mount Fuji.

This was a fun day! After crossing the bridge you can pick Left (restaurants), Right (shops/restaurants/spa) or straight ahead (more shops restaurants and all the shines). During the winter there are lights put around the middle of the island and lit up at night. most of the restaurants around the island look really good, but there is some crazy looking... More

I'm living in Japan and this is my favorite spot so far. The island offers beautiful views of Fuji and the sunset is stunning. I'm an avid photographer and this is a great spot. Please visit the caves and tidepools as they are the most interesting. The miniature "town" has many restaurants, shacks, and snack booths for satisfying your tastebuds.... More

We wanted to visit Enoshima Island since we watched a Japanese movie few years ago. Enoshima is a small island outside Tokyo with beautiful skyline. We didn't make it to see the Fujisan on the island because of the fog but still it is worth visiting. Great food and friendly people on the island so we definitely will come again!

I spent a 1-day trip with my family in Kamakura and Enoshima so it's actually quite rush. I went to Enoshima at dawn, the light-up display near Enoshima Sea Candle (observatory tower) and Samuel Cocking Garden was so romantic. Many couples and families were taking photos there. It was a pity that there was a long queue waiting for the... More

Absolutely beautiful island full of temples and shrines. Bring your walking shoes and check out all the trails. Move slowly and quietly and see all the local wildlife too. Really wonderful place to go, and so serene.

Enoshima island is one of my favorite areas in Japan. The shrine is beautiful, and there's a nice variety of shops and restaurants. As you make your way up the hill to the shrine, you'll want to stop in the last shop on you left and try out the Dr. Fish. They have a tank of little fish they will... More

Unplanned daytrip to Kamakura, we decided to venture further. Love love love this lil island. We ate at one of the restaurant, dont forget to try their local specialty-silverfish donburi (raw). We also ate the fresh squid crackers, ice creams and more snacks along the way to the shrine on top. Didnt managed to try the dayspa though.

Great way to spend a day here. There are lots to see and do such as the Sea Candle, Iwaya cave system, and the Enoshima Shrine. Try their octopus snack. It sounds disgusting but if you like seafood it is one of their specialties. I went in November so the weather was pretty dreary and a lot of the stores... More

Great sun set, hot water bath, temples , shrines and seafood. Different feelings at day time and night time. The island tower is the most famous spot here. We came on weekdays, there were really a lot of people though.
