If you want to see a lot of shrines in one location, this certainly is the place. And if you choose to take the stairs instead of paying for the escalator, a lot of rest stops might be needed on a very hot and sunny day. I think my favorite one was the shrine at the top of the first... More

This is a huge climb to get to! It's worth it every time though, it's really beautiful and fun to go to.

After you cross Benten Bridge, there is a small street for pedestrians. At the end of this street is Enoshima Shrine, which is dedicated to Benzaiten, a goddess of fortune. The steps to the main building is a little bit hard to go up. If you do not like to walk, you can also take an escalator (about $2). There... More

An awesome place to see, I lost count of how many stairs did I climb but it was worthy!!!! So many places and things to see and do, the view at the top is amazing! The caves, the ocean, the shrines, the walks in order to get to any place, everything there is worth to give a chance. A Japanese... More

You will likely pass by this shrine during your hike. Good place to stop and look around. Make sure you find the little pool by the escalator to wash your money to make more money!

Despite the crowds, even in quieter times of the year, this is a little slice of tranquility. A compact and well kept shrine.

Walk up the steps to the top of the hill (no need to pay to take the escalator) and keep stopping to rest, turn around, and admire the view down to the streets below. On the way up, you will pass under torii and can view several statues as you pause for breath. Be sure to turn around and take... More

You have to climb a lot of stairs to visit this shrine, but it's well worth it to experience the view. I unfortunately don't recall anything special about the shrine, but the setting is beautiful, peaceful, and the view is amazing.

This is the first shrine you come to as you walk across Enoshima Island. It is also offers your first little break as you walk up the hill to the top of the island. As you walk through the torii gate, look back and you will get a great view of Fujisawa.
