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.

We always enjoyed travelling on this hanging monorail when we lived near one of it's stations. An unusual way to travel - especially on a regular basis.
