We went to Enoshima, a beautiful island with a lot to see and do.
Enoshima is an island only 1 hour and 10 minutes by train from Tokyo.
It is connected to the mainland by a bridge and can be reached on foot.
1: Dragon Lanterns
On the bridge connecting the island to the mainland, there are dragon lanterns that welcomes us.
It is the symbol of Enoshima, the Dragon God.
2:Big catch Festival
This day, children dressed in beautiful traditional costumes were holding a festival to pray for a good catch of fish.
They scatter young clams and pray for a long-lasting big catch from the sea.
This shrine was built in 528 to worship Bensaiten, God of arts and entertainment.
A thatch ring is located in the shrine grounds, and it is said that turning it twice to the left and once to the right will purify one’s mind of bad luck.
5:Enoshima Sea Candle
Located in the center of Enoshima Island, the Sea Candle is a 59.8m observatory with a height of 119.6 m above sea level.
It commands a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and the mainland.
6:Samuel Cocking Garden
At the foot of the sea candles is a botanical garden with cafes, restaurants, and a children’s playground.
7:Sea View Restaurant
We had lunch at a restaurant with a view of the Pacific Ocean.
The Iwaya Cave is located on Enoshima Island.
It is said that God descended here in 528.
Clap your hands in front of the statue of the dragon god and it roars.
9:Wakano-ga-fuchi (Children’s Pool)
In front of the Iwaya Cave is Wakano-ga-fuchi (Children’s Pool), where visitors can play on the shore.
You can feel the pulse of the Pacific Ocean.
How about it?
Why don’t you enjoy a day at Enoshima?
You will feel costal atmosphere fully here!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
