Went from Ofuna to Shōnan-Enoshima Station. Try to ride in the first car and stand up front, a great view below. Hang on, it's not the smoothest ride you will ever take but I didn't mind because the view was fantastic. No problem finding my...More

This attraction is somewhat of a mystery to many travelers. It is comfortable, inexpensive and a fun way to complete your day trip without going back over the same ground again. The locals us it as a commuting tool. From just beyond the Enoshima Electric...More

This is a great way to get from Ofuna straight to Shonan-Enoshima station, then walk over the bridge onto Enoshima Island. A fantastic way to fly over the traffic and houses, and the experience is fantastic. A separate entrance from JR Ofuna, so you have...More

Although it makes me a bit queasy when I ride it, I always enjoy the monorail, which almost seems like a futuristic way of getting around still. It is quite reasonably priced and is a good way to get a bird's eye view of things...More

The website said the ride would be like going on a roller coaster and it did not disappoint. It passes over streets and houses as it makes its way up and down the mountainside.

The Shonan Monorail conveniently connects Enoshima and Ofuna, it is unique in that it is a suspended monorail, and therefore the.view from the front-end is not blocked by the rail and other machinery.
