Enoshima Sea Candle

江の島シーキャンドル

Description

This lighthouse with observation platform, built in 2002 as part of the 100th anniversary of Enoshima Electric Railway, sits 100 meters above sea level. It is affectionately considered a symbol of Shonan. “Consideration for the landscape and nature”, “Pursuit of public utility value” and “Promotion of local tourism” are the basic concepts behind Enoshima SeaCandle. The illumination changes four times a year to match each season: spring is green, with the image of tender verdancy; summer is blue; autumn is orange and yellow, reminiscent of leaves; and winter is purple. The uniqueness of the winter illumination, and the cooperation of locals in its realization, earned it the distinction of being in the top three illuminations in the Kanto region in 2012, and in the Japan Night View Heritage in 2013. A 25-minute walk from Enoshima Station on the Enoshima Electric Railway.
