First, purchase the Enoden 1-day ticket ``Noriori-kun'' from the ticket machine at the west exit of [Kamakura Station]!

*``Noriori-kun'' is on sale at all Enoden stations. It is also available for purchase online. Special facilities are also listed. Please check the Enoden homepage .
*Refunds cannot be made after the trip begins.

Before getting on the Enoden train, I went to the east exit and took a stroll along Komachi Street, which is crowded with tourists. Komachi-dori is a fun street with many souvenir shops and food shops, so it's fun just to take a walk. This time, since we were going to Kamakura, we first aimed for the ``Gaibutsu-yaki''.

After walking along Komachi Street for about 10 minutes, you will see ``Kamakura Tomoya'', a Japanese sweets and sweets shop with a blue curtain, on your right. They also sell shaved ice and ice cream, and since it was a sunny day, it was crowded. The service was very fast, so I placed my order in no time and got the Daibutsu-sama grill and Warabi Mochi Kuromitsu soft serve.

Daibutsu-yaki comes in six flavors. It is said to bring good luck, and it is said to improve luck in health, popularity, money, beauty, work, and love. This time, I bought thick-sliced bacon cheese that will improve your luck at work. I received this in hopes of improving my luck at work!

Return to Kamakura Station and finally board the Enoden!
First is Hase Station.
From here, we will head to sightseeing spots in Kamakura on foot.

First, let's go to the Kamakura Great Buddha, which is also the symbol of Kamakura!
The principal image of Kotoku-in Temple, the national treasure bronze seated Amida Nyorai statue, is very famous as the Kamakura Great Buddha. With a total height of 13.35 meters, it is large and impressive, but its gentle face made me feel warm.

Next, go to Hasedera Temple, a 5-minute walk from Kamakura Daibutsuden Kotoku-in Temple.
The Japanese garden that opens up as you enter is very calm and beautiful. Hasedera Temple is affectionately known as the ``Temple of Flowers,'' and you can see many seasonal flowers throughout the year. Especially around June, when many hydrangeas are blooming, it is a popular spot where many people visit even in the rain to catch a glimpse of the beautiful hydrangeas.

As you walk around the grounds, you will discover many things. First of all, good relationship Jizo. There are three Jizo statues in the precincts. It's so cute that I can't help but want to take a photo of it.

We also discovered a large, dark cave lined with deities called Benzaiten and his followers, the 16 Doji.

From the viewing platform, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Kamakura cityscape, Yuigahama Beach, and Zaimokuza Beach.

I'm getting hungry, so it's lunch time!
"THE ORGANIC & HEMP STYLE CAFE& BAR Asshin" is a cafe located in front of the sea. A restaurant specializing in dishes made with hemp seeds. The ocean can be seen from the large windows, making it very comfortable.

This time we had a very healthy and delicious meal, including today's fish, fried salmon, hemp charcoal rice, and whitebait topped with hemp seeds. It comes with a number of side dishes, which is a great value, and I was surprised at how delicious they all were!

It was really delicious. Thank you for the meal!

The journey continues.

With my stomach full, I boarded the Enoden train again and headed to Inamuragasaki Station.
Walk along the coast towards Inagasaki Park, which is about 7 minutes from the station.

The view from the park is spectacular, and on clear days you can even see Mt. Fuji.
There is a well-maintained lawn, so it is recommended for a relaxing break.

Riding the Enoden train again. Head to Koshigoe Station.
The view you can see from the Enoden window when passing near Shichirigahama Station is a recommended point. Don't miss it when you ride!
The Enoden train, which runs along the coast, in residential areas, and on community roads, has a different way of enjoying it than other trains.
While enjoying the scenery, we arrived at Koshigoe Station in no time.
We will extend our trip to Koshigoe Fishing Port.

At the direct sales store at Koshigoe Fishing Port, you can enjoy local fish caught that day.
You can even see Enoshima in the distance, making it a very calm and relaxing place.

Pass through Enoshima Station and head to Shonan Kaigan Koen Station next to it.
Here are some recommended restaurants that are stylish and delicious, and where you can also take advantage of Noriori-kun benefits. Goodman Coffee is a coffee stand 30 seconds walk from the station.

It was a very hot day with the sun shining brightly, so we often needed to take breaks. This store is a member of the "Noriori-kun" benefit facility, so you can get 10% off by showing your ticket when ordering!

This time I ordered an American hazelnut iced coffee and a hot cafe latte. Creamy hot cafe latte is irresistibly delicious even in the hot weather!

In addition to takeout, you can also purchase carefully selected coffee beans for home use. The shop was very busy with people enjoying coffee on the terrace and stopping by for takeout.
Very delicious coffee, thank you for the meal!

Finally, we arrived at Fujisawa Station, the last stop on the “Norori-kun” route. But I want to have a little more fun. Enoshima has been seen many times from a distance. I still wanted to go ashore, so I went back one station to Enoshima Station.
Get off at Enoshima Station, cross Bentenbashi Bridge, and arrive at the island in about 20 minutes on foot.

Pass through Nakamise Street, walk further, and at the Enoshima Escar ticket office, buy the Enoshima Observation Lighthouse Set Ticket (Enoshima Samuel Cocking Garden + Enoshima Sea Candle + Enoshima Escar), which includes an Enoshima Escar ticket (800 yen for adults, children). 400 yen). There was Enoshima Shrine on the way to Enoshima Escar three times.

At Hetsu Shrine, there was a grass grass ring. It seems that you can purify your mind and body by passing through this. There is a formal way to pass through the cogon grass ring, and there are detailed instructions, so there is no problem even if you don't know.

As you walk through the beautiful garden, you will find the Enoshima Sea Candle (observation lighthouse). Almost there!

You can take the elevator to the top floor of Enoshima Sea Candle. There are no glass windows on the top deck, so you can feel the breeze coming in from the Shonan sea and have a 360-degree view of the Shonan area, making it the perfect place to end your trip.

I still wanted to enjoy the view, so I decided to go down the stairs (you can also go down by elevator). Then, head to "THE SUNSET TERRACE" inside "Enoshima Sea Candle". The interior of the store is lined with sofa seats, and with a wonderful view, it's a comfortable place to relax and take a break. We relaxed and waited for the sun to set while drinking colorful drinks.

Enoshima Sea Candle also has special benefits for ``Noriori-kun''. If you show your ticket, you can get ``Enoshima Sea Candle'' (normally 500 yen for adults and 250 yen for children, but get a 50 yen discount for adults and 20 yen for children), and ``Enoshima Escar'' (normally 360 yen for adults and 180 yen for children). 140 yen discount, 70 yen discount for children).
