Enoshima Island

Reviewed By PlanetOz - Melbourne, Australia

My wife and I visited this Island as part of a day tour of the Kamukura District. This Island is a small place and can be accessed by a traffic bridge. There are 3 sets of escalators that are used for going up the hill, but visitors have to walk down several flights of stairs from the top.

Enoshima Sea Candle

Reviewed By Claudetteth - Charlottetown, Canada

We accessed the tower with our 1000yen pass ( includes access to a number of locations and attractions on the island)sold at the tourist info centre. Separately, the admission to the tower is 300yen plus 200 yen if you want to do the Samuel Cocking Gardens.
The views from the top of the tower are lovely... If you're lucky you may even see Mount Fugi.
While on the Island, be sure to take in all the sights as this is such a lovely location.

Enoshima Aquarium

The aquarium is right on the beach and features some amazing displays, including a large three story aquarium featuring sharks and so many fish. The shows are the highlight and we had the chance to watch the dolphin show, which was entertaining and also very popular.

Enoshima Shrine

Reviewed By PlanetOz - Melbourne, Australia

Most of the Japanese people are deeply religious and there are either Shinto shrines or Buddhist temples in every place that we visited during our 2 weeks in Japan. Having seen many magnificent shrines in Kyoto, Nara, Nikko and other places, this particular shrine here is mediocre.

Terrace Mall Shonan

Reviewed By BCinJapan - Yokohama, Japan

This is a nice western style mall for the location. Some western brands, some local and a nice theater. The parking structure is very environmentally friendly with coordinated lights indicating open spaces. If you want a larger selection, LaLaPort in Yokohama is much better.

Enoshima Iwaya Caves

Reviewed By Dave_Cowley_Road - Oxford, United Kingdom

The caves are part of the Enoshima experience, so do see them if you are on the island. You are given a light to get you through the caves, and there are shrines and objects of interest inside. It is a cool damp place to visit on a hot day. The walk to get there is demanding but also provides very nice views.

Enoshima Benten Bridge

Reviewed By Kimitaka S

Benten Bridge links the Mainland and Enoshima, and on this bridge is a nice spot for taking a picture. Thanks to this bridge (just 300 m or less), we can walk to Enoshima easily. The view of its both sides is really beautiful. In summer, this areas are turned to a beach resort.

Tsujido Kaihin Park

Reviewed By mari w - Fujisawa, Japan

This park has 3 sections, a regular park for strolling in (no charge), a jumbo swimming pool area open in the summer (800 yen for an adult?), and a transportation museum/amusement park (no charge). It's a short bus ride away from JR Tsujidou station. If you have a child who likes vehicles, it's a great place to visit. Bicycle and go-carts are rented for free. They also have a self-pedaled 'skyway' for a small charge, in which a small 2-seater car is pedaled over a loop several meters above the ground. They also have a small transportation museum (also small charge) in which there is a small film theater showing a fire prevention film, and model railway with moving trains.
The jumbo swimming pool has a loop flow pool, and there is also a wave producing pool. None of the pools are deep. They also have a huge thrilling slide, although the line for it is always quite long. The facilities are poor, for example, no benches in the changing room next to the lockers, the lockers eat your money if you make a mistake with no refunds made, no western style toilets except for one for handicapped people. You are allowed to bring food in. You are not required to wear a swimming cap, which is unusual for a Japanese public swimming pool. They sell food and drinks. There are shaded areas, but no seats. You have to spread your own towel on the ground. They have very frequent rests in which everyone has to get out of the water, and even the slides are stopped, making the wait even longer. There is no free shower to wash yourself off after your swim. They also had a large inflated ball in which you could walk, floating on the water, for an extra charge. The staff are rude in general, and I don't want to go back.
If you are driving there, I recommend parking in the lot close to the ocean, and getting lunch or dinner at Higeden, an oden restaurant across the street from the parking lot exit. They serve great oden as well as other fresh fish teishoku. They started out as a street vendor, and are now 2nd or 3rd generation.

Chigogafuchi Marine Plateau

Reviewed By hfot2 - Vermont

The coastline of Enoshima is approached by very long, steep sets of stairs. It was quite a long walk from the the Shrine. We were headed to Iwaya Caves but stopped to admire the rocky cliffs falling away to the bay below. The tide was low and the waves were coming in creating a majestic view out to the water.
Many men were fishing from the flat, rugged stones which appeared to form a base beneath the cliffs. There were pockets in the flat stones that held water from the previous high tide.

Enoshima Samuel Cocking-en

Reviewed By meiyih - Tokyo, Japan

Visited during the winter tulips season in early March so saw the wonderful tulips , both admission fees included in the Enoshima Pass. Not much to see for the garden itself but like the Observatory tower a lot, which gives view of the entire island, remember to take the stairs to the open air Observatory deck...thrillin experience
