Hi there! My name is Atsumi, and one of my favorite things to do is introduce railways throughout Japan.
This time I combined a trip along the Enoshima Electric Railway with some walking tours recommended by a consultant, Mr. Toshiyuki, who joined me along with photographer Yoichi Yoshinaga, who is famous for taking aerial photographs of railways.

Enjoying a leisurely rest before our trip!

Today we will be visiting the following:
1. A Japanese style ice fruit café next to the railroad tracks
2. Enjoy seeing the trains from a European style cafe
3. Try Enoshima Island’s famous Enoden Monaka
4. Be thrilled by the sight of trains passing through the streets

1. Mushinan: Japanese style ice fruit café next to the railroad tracks

I was hoping to see something special, like a train on the street

Do you look for special sights using social media? I often go to social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., to see beautiful scenery, delicious food, interesting scenery and more. And I can’t help but upload my own photos to share with many people. So this time, I also want to take a walk and find attractive trainspotting places which I can upload!

Let’s start from Kamakura Station!
Located in the Shonan area of Kanagawa Prefecture, Enoshima is connected to Kamakura Station and Fujisawa Station. It is a fun train trip full of local flavor. It has been a very popular route along the line through many famous sightseeing spots such as the Kamakura Buddha.

Pick up a 1-day ticket: "NORIORIKUN"

1-day "NORIORIKUN" tickets can be purchased at ticket vending machines

If you take the JR Yokosuka Line from Tokyo Station you can arrive at Kamakura in about an hour. First, remember to purchase the 1-day ticket "NORIORIKUN" (600 yen), so that you can take unlimited rides on the train plus enjoy nearby sightseeing facilities and food. The discounts for shops, cafes, etc., are really cost-effective!

Enoshima Electric Railway – shortened to "Enoden" – is extremely popular. Although we are here on a weekday, we still see a lot of tourists along the way. If you visit on the weekend, then the station has long queues and is full of people!

I saw Mushinan when I came out of Wadazuka Station

Wadazuka Station is the next stop after Kamakura, and can be found immediately upon exiting the station. Railway fans tend to stop by here when visiting this railway.

I could see the Enoshima Electric train moving past

This café is one of the must-see spots of this area, with beautiful courtyards filled with seasonal flowers, as well as the café’s great atmosphere and light food.
