Enoshima is an island connected to the mainland by Enoshima-ohashi bridge. It is dotted with popular sightseeing spots such as shrines and caves. You will find a bronze torii gate that is a designated cultural property of Fujisawa City at the entrance of Enoshima. The entrance path leads to Enoshima Shrine, which is one of three great shrines dedicated to the deity, Benten. There are shops selling seafood from Sagami Bay and other souvenirs along the path. For a fee, the escalator, Enoshima Escar, will take you up 46 meters in just four minutes. The Love Bell built to commemorate an Enoshima love legend stands atop Lovers' Hill right above the Enoshima Iwaya Caves and is visited by many couples. The island is a 10-minute walk from Katase Enoshima Station on the Odakyu Line. Enoshima is hilly so wear comfortable shoes if you do not plan to use the Enoshima Escar.
