Enoshima: Heart of Shonan

About an hour south of Shinjuku, on the Shonan Coast, sits Enoshima Island. It is a chunk of rock rising out of the waters of Sagami Bay, sitting less than a kilometer offshore from the volcanic sand beaches of the mainland. Immortalized in one of Hokusai’s Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, the island has lured Japanese and foreign visitors for more than 1500 years by offering a look at the past while staying relevant as a great modern travel destination.
