Create an itinerary including Enoshima Shrine
A complex of three temples dedicated the goddess of knowledge, Enoshima Shrine dates back to the 5th century and remains one of the area's major Shinto sites. You'll have to climb steep stairs to reach the shrines, so wearing comfortable shoes is advised. The view from the top makes the uphill trek worthwhile--take a moment to soak in the views of the sea and contemplate the long history of this sacred place.

  • Summer night light up is beautiful!!I was there between 18:00 to 19:00 and it was nice moment of lights.
  • Great shine and surrounding area. Lots of walking, so wear good shoes. Lots of stairs if you walk from caves to end of shopping street. Love bell and sea candle along the path from start to finish. You could spend all day here really. But we did everything at a relaxing pace and it took us around 4-5 hours maybe. Could be done quicker for sure. Good snacks and restaurants along the way too.
