Last Sunday’s weather was no different when we went to Enoshima, a beach town situated about 40 minutes away from Yokohama, about 2 hours from the heart of Tokyo, and about 1 hour and 30 minutes away from my home, because I live near Kawasaki. Enoshima is a paradise, it is very close to Tokyo so a lot of people go there during the weekends, especially now that the weather is getting hotter.
My good friend John cordially invited us for a photowalk and he was kind enough to guide us all around the place.
Our cameras at hand, we photographed a lot of stuff. This old train with its railway that runs through the public road itself. This cool “dried fish” store with a “cool” dried fish hanging by its window. This cool woman riding a scooter with 2 dogs riding with her, just sitting there in the front.
Enoshima is also popular for its delicacy called “shirasu”, young sardines either fried or eaten raw, also used as rice toppings or in a sandwich. We all got the fried one on top of the rice.
The aura in the air feels light, and people are just trying to relax and have a good time. We had a good time. We didn’t swim but I will definitely come back and chill out more in this beautiful, cool part of my world.
Here are the rest of the photos.
