We started the day catching a train from Shinjuku to Fujisawa. From here we went on the Enoshima Electric Railway and went right to the end to Kamakura. Kamakura was a great little town with a fabulous street with lots of shops, restaurants and shrines....More

Last time I was on Enoshima was 1998. There are s not a big change, still nice to walk along the beach. The food stalls are overpriced for a lousy food quality, to my understanding. However it's a touristy place and it's to be expected.

Sep2016. I walked over a long bridge (no shade so be prepared to be baked by the sun or else bring an umbrella) and I reached the small Enoshima island. Almost all the footpaths on Enoshima island are up/down hill. Not much flat areas. The...More

We had so much fun on Enoshima Island- more so than we expected, actually! It is an easy day trip from Tokyo, it took us about an hour and 45 minutes from the Asakusa area to Enoshima, three trains total but pretty easy to navigate....More

Tattoos are generally frowned upon in Japan. However, since it is a beach and not a private spa, there will be no one to deny you entry. If you are worried, try to be discreet about it.
