The Enoden runs among the residential areas, literary 1.5-2 feet away from houses. When it reaches Shichiri gahama in Shonan area, you see the Pacific Ocean right below your nose through the train window. Along the scenic route you can enjoy the changing scenery of mountains, beaches, tunnels and changing into a streetcar. The ancient city of Kamakura at one end of the line is a city with 800 years of history with famous Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines such as Kamakura’s Great Buddha, Hase Kannon temple, Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu shrine and Zeniarai Benten. You can also find art museums and popular spots along the historical streets.
