1 day Enoshima & Kamakura

Updated: 7 days ago

Tessera is offering a day trip to popular tourist destinations close to Tokyo, Enoshima and Kamakura.


Shonan Monorail

One of the monorails which use suspended system, which the train is hanging from the single beam, not like straddle beam system, i.e. Tokyo monorail which is connecting Hamamatsu-cho and Haneda airport which the train straddles on the beam. Straddle beam system is much common than the suspended one.

Enoden

Enoden(officially called as Enoshima dentetsu) line is a single-track railway which is very uncommon in urban developed area, especially in Tokyo Metropolitan area. Then, 6 stations do not have any staff allocated which is also rare.

Enoshima is a tied island, connected with Honshu by tombolo, located at Sagami bay in Kanagawa prefecture. Popular destination in Kanto region, the first outdoor escalator in Japan was built in 1959 and Enoshima shrine is located too. Local specialties are whitebait and horned turban. Especially raw whitebait on rice is the Enoshima's most popular dish, very worth to try.
