Enoshima Sea Candle江の島シーキャンドル(江の島展望灯台)

Observatory / Outlook

Built in 1951 as a viewing platform and lighthouse, the Enoshima Sea Candle was the first private lighthouse in Japan. The building was renovated in 2003 as part of the events celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Enoshima Electric Railway. Providing sweeping views of the sun setting into the ocean and Kamakura’s nightscape from 100 meters above the sea, the tower is quite popular with visitors. At night, the Sea Candle and surrounding area are lit up, creating a wondrous spectacle.

Kanagawa Main Areas


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.
