The Enjoyable Enoden Line

Running beside Sagami Bay & Enoshima

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

The Enoden Line, established in 1900, is a unique tram connecting Kamakura, Enoshima and Fujisawa. It runs on a single-track, and we must often wait for the tram coming from the opposite direction to pass. It goes very close to the sea along Sagami Bay, especially between Koshigoe and Inamura-ga-saki Stations. When you head toward Fujisawa and sit on the left side seats, you will enjoy the sea and Enoshima out the window. It also runs between residential districts in some parts of the line. You might be surprised to see houses just in front of your nose.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。

Thank you Daniel and Mouli. Enoden offers one-day ticket for 600 yen. If you ride it four times or more, it's worth purchasing. Enjoy!

It must be really exciting to travel by a train which is runs parallel to the sea ! I have been in boats but, trains must be a totally new experience ! Nice video Tomoko !
