The Enoshima Electric Railway - well loved for over 100 years!
The Enoshima Electric Railway—commonly known as the Enoden—runs from the old capital at Kamakura to Shonan-Fujisawa and Enoshima, connecting ages past with modernity.
First opened in 1902, it has been well-loved for more than 100 years.
Enoshima and Kamakura are outstanding locations and have appeared in a wide variety of drama, comics, and songs. From the windows of the Enoden, it’s possible to peek at beautiful and heartwarming scenes of ordinary Japan.
The area is so full of points of interest that you’ll likely ride the train many times. Please consider enjoying Kamakura’s scenery on the “Noriori-kun” one-day travel pass, available for ¥600 at any Enoden station.
The Enoden is loved not only by locals but by railroad fans as well. Its popularity is so deep-rooted that some people see it more as a brand than as a means of transportation.
Its characteristic outside appearance is certainly one reason for this, but the special atmosphere of a local train once on board has its own charm as well.
You’ll probably come to see the Enoden not only as a means of transportation, but also as a fun part of your tourist experience.
The most picturesque scenery is visible after passing through the city and emerging from a tunnel to the gorgeous view of Shichirigahama beach. If you’re lucky, you can see both Enoshima and Mount Fuji at the same time.
This holy trinity of Shichirigahama, Enoshima, and Mount Fuji, utterly representative of Kamakura, is so beautiful that it frequently appears in ukiyo-e artwork.
It is a daily scene where train and cars are running side by side. Enoden is well loved and localized for a long time for those who live in Kamakura/Shonan area.
