Enoshima Island

The other day, I rode my bike from my apartment along the coast to Enoshima, a small island of with a 4km circumference in Sagami Bay. The island is a popular resort in the summer time.

It was drizzling the whole day, but it definitely added to the experience.

The island is connected to the mainland by a 600 meter long bridge.

Near the center of the island is a large shrine complex that snakes its way up the through the island and to the back side, where there is a network of caves. Here is the view of the mainland from the center of the island.

One of my favorite sites on the island was this dragon shrine. It was a small space composed of stacked rocks.

The entrance to the caves comes after a dramatic walk along rocky cliffs.
