While researching things to do and places to see during our girls trip to Mainland I found Enoshima Island and quickly added it to our list. We road tripped from Yokosuka, a short 45 minute drive with stunning ocean views all around! All in all it was a wonderful place for a day trip! ^^ we had lunch in that brown building back there ^^I didn’t get any photos of the outside of the place where we ate lunch.. but it’s the Enoshima Island Spa. Once you come into the island it is to the right of that turquoise torii gate (^^). It was very confusing to get around.. and to figure out how it worked. We went straight upstairs to the restaurant and once the waitress came over she told us that you have to get a pass/key from the downstairs lobby check in desk. With that pass you get to charge your food, and then you pay downstairs at the end. Thankfully she spoke some English and was nice enough to help out three lost American girls!
While paying for our meal.. we were told that tattoos are not allowed in the spa (..even though we didn’t use the actual spa facilities) and our friend Allison basically had to leave the premises because her tattoos were sort of showing… If you don’t have any tattoos, then for sure check them out, their pools look amazing!
After walking around the shrine we made our way to the Enoshima Sea Candle, a sort of lighthouse observation tower and had a sneak peek of the Samuel Cocking Garden. The view from the top of the sea candle did not disappoint!
