Enoshima is a tied island connected to the mainland via a sandbar. Known for its picturesque scenery since ancient times, the island is also home to Enoshima-jinja Shrine and numerous other historic Shinto shrines. Sightseeing spots have continued to accrue on the island over time, including the Samuel Cocking Garden as well as a stone monument dedicated to the 1964 Olympics. The Enoshima Sea Candle lighthouse, which is lit up beautifully at night, is a more recent addition. In times past and today, Enoshima remains a popular tourist destination visited by countless travelers.

Review of Enoshima Island

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/12/01 More interesting than I thought
Good for a half day walk if you can't spare the time. Your first stop after crossing the bridge is Nakamise Enoshima which is lined with shops and street food. A must try is of course the octopus...
Reviewed:2018/11/25 Great relaxed place
We caught a train from Shinjuku which took about an hour. Was well worth it to get out of the busy city. Lots of variety of seafood to eat, and things to see. Only really half a day on the island...

Part of the fun of visiting Enoshima Island is getting there. We traveled in on the train then walked the quaint tourist shop lined streets. We could have been anywhere in the US at that point...

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
