Tokyo Island Getaway – Enoshima

enoshima 1

One of the many island getaways in Tokyo.

In my recent trip to Japan, I visited Enoshima (江の島), a small offshore island in the Kanagawa Prefecture that’s about 1.5 hours away from Tokyo city center by public train. If you are looking for a break from the hectic city life, it’s a pretty good option for a short day trip. Many locals go there for fishing and also catch the sunset. On a good day you can catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji. What’s not to like about an island that is within the city’s reach and yet it has all the charm of it’s own as a mini resort town?
