Enoshima (江ノ島)

Today my grad school friends and I took the train outside of Yokohama and spent the day on the tiny island of Enoshima near Kamakura.

Enoshima makes a great day trip from Yokohama, and, while the weather was nothing short of scorching, we still had a really nice time walking through the island and seeing the sights. There are of course many restaurants and souvenir shops. The main attraction is the "Sea Candle" lighthouse / observation tower that offers great views of the island.

This tiny island is also a destination for those who love eating shirasu or tiny baby whitebait sardines. They are in everything here from the rice bowls to the tofu to the crackers to the ice cream. There is no escaping these tiny white fish so come hungry.

Enjoy the pictures below!
