Enoshima Electric Railway

For train lovers visiting the Kamakura or Enoshima area southwest of Yokohama, the Enoshima Electric railway is a destination in itself. Rumbling mere feet between old homes, past ancient temples and along a beautiful stretch of Sagami Bay, this 115-year-old line is a throwback to the days when the ride itself was the destination. The line itself is single track (one track for both directions) though five of the fifteen stations have double track, enabling trains to pass each other on the route. Nonetheless, this isn’t a line to ride if you are in a hurry, but just a fun way to see the beautiful sights along the Enoshima coast.
