Enoshima is a small island in the sea connected to the land. The connecting channel between the island and the land is almost buried in water. The cause of the uplift is the movement of the crust. It has a long history, the legends of gods and monsters are popular, and the historical sites are densely covered. It is the top spot in Japan. Many animation games mention or draw on the scenery. Tourists go to the island through the cross-sea road. The lighthouse on the island overlooks the ocean or looks back at the land. .
Shonan Monorail Line Shonan Enoshima Station, Enoshima Electric Railway Enoshima Station, Odakyu Electric Railway Enoshima Line Katase Enoshima Station Get off the train and walk less than one kilometer. It is fun to watch the sea and take a walk. There is a small town selling souvenirs and seafood canteens.
To be precise, Enoshima is not in Kamakura, but in Fujisawa City. The reason I chose this route is to avoid going back the whole journey. After visiting Fujisawa Enoshima, I can take the high-speed train back to Tokyo. 💰Per capita consumption: After leaving Enoshima Station, you can walk towards the seaside to reach this single island connected to the land: Enoshima. 📌Little Tips: This small island is only four kilometers long and is a land-based island connected to the mainland by a sandbar. There are several sightseeing spots on the island. Including shrines, parks, observatories, and caves, you can see Mount Fuji on a clear day. 💗Recommendation reason: Enoshima at sunset gives me the feeling of being surrounded by orange. It seems that the Japanese animation industry has a soft spot for this, and there is a close-up of Enoshima's vision in "Slam Dunk". Across the long bridge, I came to Enoshima, and crossed a commercial pedestrian street. The first thing I saw was the shrine. The Eshima Shrine on the island is one of Japan's three largest Senjaten Shrines. There are really many shrines in Japan, and I didn't go to visit this one. Eshima Shrine began as a shrine built in Iwaya by Emperor Kin Tomorrow in 552 AD, and the current Eshima Shrine is composed of three shrines: Heonzu Palace, Nakatsu Palace, and Okuzu Palace. They are collectively called Eshima Shrine and are enshrined on the island. All of the gods are eloquent. 🌟Highlights and features: Climbing up to the observation platform at the top of Enoshima Island, you can see the endless sea and white sails. You know, Enoshima is also the place where the 1964 Tokyo Olympic sailing competition took place. Hidden in the depths of Enoshima Bay, "Long Lian no Bell" is a symbol of love and vows, and of course it needs the blessing of lovers. It's great to watch this young couple walk into the shrine, climb a mountain road and meet them blessing for love. Because it was late, we didn't continue to go to the side of Observatory Island, which meant that we had climbed a peninsula. We were supposed to get off the island from there, and we could return to the shore of Fujisawa City by boat, so we went back the same way. Looking at the sea and the sunset here, I feel very beautiful. 🌟Highlights and features: If you are lucky, you can see Mount Fuji. We are the kind of lucky ones. When we see Mount Fuji at sunset, the outline is very clear. 📌Little Tips: There are especially many cats on the island. When you come to Enoshima, you have to eat one of their specialties-octopus pancakes. A whole octopus is completely flattened by a "slap". It is sandwiched between two super flat pancakes and bitten down. It has the original fishy smell of octopus. 🚗Traffic strategy: Enoden (Enoshima Station) / Odakyu Railway (near Katase Enoshima Station Aquarium) / Shonan Monorail (Shonan Enoshima Station near Ryukoji Temple). 📌Little Tips: Enoshima is particularly interesting, you can choose to climb the stairs to the top of the island, or you can choose to spend money to take the elevator. And the elevator has only up, not down. Every time you walk a section of the mountain road, you will see signs for elevators. The elevators are built in the island rock and integrated with the island. 💰Per capita consumption: free
A very quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of big cities. When the weather is good, you can see Mount Fuji. I was lucky to see Mount Fuji two days in a row. There is a shop selling squid cakes/prawn cakes on the commercial street, which just presses a prawn or a squid into a cake, which is very interesting. Then walk along the coast of Shonan, this is the Japanese sailing training ground, you can see many people playing sailing.
