Get the day pass at ¥600 to allow unlimited trips on the Enoden. The trains and stations are a sight themselves, some stations have interesting displays that are worth viewing instead of just passing them by.

In Kamakura there is a daily transport pass available outside the railway station to give you access to all the travel options in the town. This is very convenient as many of the shrines and temples are on the hills outside the town and if...More

We enjoyed our trip on this railway from Kamakura to Hasa the cars are well maintained and it was nice to go between the areas. The houses are so close to the tracks that you sometimes can glimpse into their yards

Take the Enoden Train to Hase and walk 10 minutes, Or at Kamakura you can take the buss which will take you there by the Bank area. Other buss from Fujisawa Station and it's marked Enoden. 15th stop from there.
