I went to Enoshima.

Enoshima is a popular resort destination for Tokyoites.

It’s warmer than Tokyo because it is washed by the warm currents of the Pacific Ocean.

And the vegetation is more tropical than mainland.

It is only about an hour from Tokyo.

So it is easy to put a day trip on your itinerary.

Also if you stay overnight, you can enjoy it even more together with Kamakura, which is only 20 minutes away.

The roses were very beautiful in May.

There are also many tall palm trees.
It was as if we were in a tropical country.

Admission to the Botanical Garden is 200 yen( 2 dollars) , and the Sea Candle Observation Deck is 500 yen( 5 dollars).

If you come to Tokyo, why don’t you enjoy the tropical atmosphere at Enoshima?
