Enoshima is an island situated west of Kamakura that has become a haven for both foreigners and locals alike. The island has something for everyone: from huge waves and the chance to surf during spring or summer to even historical shrines paying homage to the origin of the land. For photographers, the scenery is also simply fantastic, with flowers atop the island to beautiful views of the city below. At times in fact, when the sky is clear, one can even catch a glimpse of Mt. Fuji in the distance. This place is a definite must-see for all!

I entered the land of the rising sun a while back in 2011, and have been working as a salaryman ever since. Still, this doesn't mean that I don't manage to get around. My friends know me as an avid food and travel fan, and there are a couple of days, when we would just explore what Japan has to offer.And let me tell you, from a foreigner's eyes such as myself, Japan truly is beauty, and this beauty can be found even in the most uncommon of places. For people like me that only have such a short time during weekends to relax, I am here to show you that there are alternatives to the famed Kyoto or Osaka. Let me take you on a journey!
