Take the train from Shinjuku station and in about an hour with one change, you will arrive at the bridge to the island. The walk across the bridge is an eye opener, despite warm,sunny weather on the way it turned blustery and cold. Ladies do yourselves a favor and do not wear a dress or skirt unless you have long...

You can get here from Kamakura using the Enoshima Dentetsu line (electric car). Keep an eye out the window as the views are great, especially while you ride along the ocean. After getting off at Enoshima station, you'll walk south across the bridge. Look right and you may be able to see the majestic Fuji-san, depending on how clear it... More

I loved visiting Enoshima island! As others have mentioned the island is pretty steep! There is an escalator, but this only goes up, not down, and doesn't go to all parts of the island. The island has great views and atmosphere - I would definitely recommend buying visiting the sea caves!

One of my favorite places to visit, exercise, relax, bring visiting friends from out of town/country and stuff my face. Visit/bring out of town visitors/ exercise: I've been here several times. I'm always trying something new. The restaurants or spend a little more time looking around. I'm Fitbit person so I log in many steps and floors from the front... More

Enoshima is a magical island, easily accessed from Tokyo by train (you can use your suica card). A short walk across the bridge from the station takes you to this enchanted island - it used to be the home of a Dragon after all. The narrow winding streets take you on a climb to the shrines that stand proudly atop... More

The first thing you notice is the traditional entrance to the train station, than the bridge linking the island to the mainland and than the hawks. They fly really low above the visitors' heads and are very impressive. The hilly street is full of shops and stalls offering strange and interesting dishes like octapus crackers and tiny fish crackers, wasabi... More

The approach to the Enoshima Shrine was very crowded. You can purchase combined tickets for escalators to the top and the Sea Candle for 750 JPY. A magnificent view of Mt. Fuji on a clear sunny winter day from Enoshima.

It s quite convenience to go, if to take Odakyu line from Shinjuku, only cost 630 yen. The island is just perfect for one day round trip from city center. Even if you cant see fujisan on cloudy day, still worth going . The sunset is breath taking
