What travelers are saying
- I did a guided live-streamed tour of Enoshima Island with Eriko from Heygo. She divided her tours into two sections each about 50 mins long with a 45 mins interval. She is doing another tour of this island later to show us the lights. She showed us the unique Enoshima Station facade on the mainland. Then we walked across the short causeway along the pedestrian bridge. After walking past a green Torii Gate, the narrow alley has shops on both sides. There are three shrines altogether at different levels. There are escalators up but it does not go down. We went up Enoshima Sea Candle to have a panoramic view of the island and the Pacific Ocean. It is a lovely island worth a visit.Written December 7, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- It's a very good place to relax, the lighting makes it easier for me to indulge in the ocean/sea life as I look into the tanks filled with different sea-lifes. I spend quite a lot of time in there while waiting for the rain outside to die down since I had the intention to visit Enoshima island on the same day. There's an outdoor observation deck available at the aquarium that overlooks the Shonan Kaigan Coast - it would be a good place for photos if the weather isn't that bad. The aquarium entrance fee is also priced reasonably, while it's cheaper than the Osaka Kaiyuukan - but it didn't lose out to the Osaka Kaiyuukan at all, in my opinion. In fact, I think the interior set up is more attractive as compared to the Osaka Kaiyuukan when I last visited in 2014.Written September 8, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Great views across the bay, the beach and Mt Fjui from the top of the Sea Candle. Nice little cafe at the base of the Sea Candle. You can pay the admission fee at the start of the escalators at the bottom of the hill on a combined ticket that includes using the escalators, the Samuel Cocking garden and the Sea Candle.Written May 28, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- A great time and was not crowded on Sunday. The history of the cave is very cool too. And to know that people had to trek and cry those statues there was fascinating. The coolness of the caves is a great break from hot summer days. The walk there is a little rough especially up all the stairs to get back. But if you take your time there are plenty of little ice cream shops and break areas.Written June 27, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I'm not a very beach type of person, but I thought since I'm in the vicinity ... I might as well swing by to see how the beach looks like. I have to say, I'm impressed by the entire length of the coastline. I saw quite a number of people engaging in surfing activities while being there, and the stretch of restaurants situated along the coast line serving the beach patrons. A lot of the restaurants/cafes along the coast sell shaved ices from Taiwan, Soft Serve cones as well... of course, Takoyaki is also available on their menus. Not to forget the BBQ seafood etc... it's a very happening beach, unlike the beach in Singapore [East Coast Park etc].
The toilets on the beach area is those portable types, quite interesting to see that as well. Though, it's understandable that they have such toilets on the beach. Otherwise, one have to walk all the way to the train stations for a public toilet, and that can be quite inconvenient. Although, the Enoshima Aquarium is close by - I'm not so sure whether the facility toilet is open for public use... I didn't stay at the Kaigan park for long since I visited the place alone and I'm not exactly a beach type of people. Still, I have to say - it's very different from the East Coast park in Singapore.Written September 10, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- 3 full blocks of stationery, clothing, lifestyle and concept designs makes this a traveler’s nook/haven. The cafe and restaurant serve good food and yummy drinks. I had to peel myself away when it was time to leave.Written November 7, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Lovely experience despite the lack of photos due to the bad weather, I visited during day time so I'm not sure how it looks like at night. However, the flowers are all very well-maintain and groom that it's very attractive and colorful - very appealing to the eyes. I would love to visit again when the weather is better so I could get more photos, and walk about the garden more.Written September 8, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- The shrine is up in the hill. There is an escalator to go up there but quiet expensive, not worth if you can walk up by yourself. The view is good up there as you can see the whole area from the shrine.Written June 28, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- The mall is located directly beside the Tsujido train station. It's bright, modern and quite large. There's a lot of variety in the shops, some local and some worldwide stores. There's also a lot of variety in the restaurants in the mall.Written May 28, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I have been living in this area for years, so I have been watching how the city has been transforming the this park. They have done a pretty good job on renewing and maintaining the pool where they have water slider other stuff within the park. This could be a hilite for kids for sure. The park has lots wide open space with grass and there are 2 points connected directly to the local beach. There aren't much of shop around or either within, so I would suggest you should gear up with picnic item. Then you will be OK at least for a day.Written May 11, 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- You can visit here by 40 minutes of stair walk through the Enoshima island.
Sagami bay and the Pacific Ocean are in front of you giving a great view.
On fine days, Mt. Fuji can be viewed also.
I enjoyed the views and refreshing sea breeze for a while.
Kids have fun looking for crabs and other sea creatures.
Nice place. 😊Written May 3, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This temple is about 10-15 minutes walk from Fujisawa station. You would pass by Fujisawa bridge along the way. Came here around late afternoon, it's quiet and peaceful. Only a few old couples and people bringing dogs for walk. A good place to calm oneself as it is not crowded.Written April 20, 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- After visiting Enoshima we decided to detour to visit the temple before heading back to Kamakura. It is a short distance from the train station on the mainland and an easy walk. You can look out the window for the temple as the train approaches the Enoshima station.
The name of the temple is literally dragon mouth and dragons were expertly carved on the entrance and the main hall. In fact, the entire complex had vast amounts of fine wood carvings. The temple is well preserved and maintained.
On the left side of the central courtyard as you enter and tucked into the hillside you can see the cave where Nichiren, founder of the Nichiren Sect of Buddhism, was imprisoned. Apparently, he was almost beheaded on the site but was saved by a bolt of lighting which split the executioner’s blade just at the time that the shogun’s man arrived with a reprieve.
The bell tower can be easily accessed and photographed. The five-story pagoda is difficult to photograph due to the trees around it and the location of the stairs to reach it.
The temple was empty when we visited save for a few school boys who were playing a game of ball when we arrived. One monk walked by. The main hall sadly was closed.Written June 4, 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- You can see this beach as you cross the Benten bridge to Enoshima island. Not many people here but good enough to take a walk to enjoy the sea air.Written February 27, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
