Tips from the community

Enoshima is a popular day trip destination for Tokyo locals who want to escape the city on a quiet Sunday. This quaint island houses a shrine, a garden, and an observation tower that doubles as a lighthouse. It’s a lovely place to visit, especially for families, while in Kamakura.

Enoshima is a small island just off the shore, offering the sandiest beaches near Tokyo and Yokohama. With many fun attractions including a spa, cultural activities, and a world-famous aquarium, as well as being very closely located to Kamakura, Enoshima is the perfect place to enjoy a sunny day.

  • Towns to Visit on the Outskirts of Tokyo

    After spending time in Tokyo, it's always nice to get outside of the city and see the surrounding areas. There are a lot of varying landscapes on Tokyo's outskirts, from beaches to mountains, that show different sides of Japan and new activities which you cannot always experience in central Tokyo. I have included in this list suburbs of Tokyo that are perfect for overnight trips, as well as often-overlooked areas in Tokyo around the outskirts to take you a little bit off the beaten path in your Japan travels.
