A little fox shrine located into the Kamakura hills, which Google maps made us go through several feet through the hillside until other travelers told us that there was an alternate route from the train station through several homes. Silly us! Once arriving, you will...More

This is the small brother of the shrine in Kyoto. If you are in the Tokyo area and don't have the time to go to Kyoto, this is worth seeing. Close and accessible from Tokyo.

A lovely little shrine located a bit of the beaten track. A bit tricky to find without a map from the tourist information centre. The path leading up to the shrine is full of red torii gates. Really impressive!There are 1000s of miniature ceramic foxes...More

What a marvel! While walking on the trail north of the town, found the directions to this shrine and after and adventurous descent entered this spectacular little shrine. The tiny statues of the racoons, the little main shrine itself and the winding path an stairs...More

By mistake we took the hiking trail from Daibutsu and almost died on our way there because it rained earlier making the trail unsafe to hike. So after hugging whatever we could grab to get down from the main trail to the shrine, the masses...More

This is a little out of the way, though you can combine a visit with the Daibutsu Trail or visiting Zeniarai Benzaiken shrine. You emerge out of the Kamakura suburbs and dive down a long avenue of torii, with some fox guardians along the way....More

This shrine is off the beaten path. There were more locals than tourists in the area, and it was not at all crowded. The path of tori gates is neat as well as all the foxes left behind. You can even buy your own pair...More

We went to this shrine as it was on the way as we were done visiting the zeniarai benzaiten shrine. This shrine is really peculiar, there were many torii gates as we walked up to the main site, and while we were there we also...More

I've been to a good handful of fox shrines and this by far is my favorite. It is a little remote so there were very few people there. I saw maybe three people. It's in the forest creating a quiet, spooky atmosphere. There was even...More

I only knew this Shrine existed because I was looking for it, otherwise I would’ve walked right past it. You can get to it either through the town and then you start from the bottom of the torii gates (which is a great first impression...More

Kamakura/Enoshima Day Trip Itinerary advice (11 Replies)
Hi Everyone, I've read many articles and forums here, I think it got me more confused. Can anyone help with an Itinerary and also let me know if I am trying to pack too many things in 1 day... My Airbnb is located near Nishi-Shinjuku 5 Chome station, and we plan on purchasing the Enoden Free Pass (Longer, but round trip is included). Would I find my way to the main Shinjuku Station from here? Here are the places that I've marked down that we should check out, but I don't know...More

There are too many places to go around. Enoshima alone takes more than half a day. It depends on what month you are going. (Sunset relationship, light up, fireworks and other events) Meigetsuin (Hydrangea Temple) may not go except June or July. I lived fairly close to Ofuna Kannonji Temple for nearly 30 years, but I have never been there. If you stand on the right side of the train (Yokosuka line, Tokaido line etc.), you can see the exterior from the train. The return will be on the...More
