Having seen the major sights and temples in Kamakura, I decided to explore the rest of the Kamakura vicinity on the Enoden line. The Enoden line is a really scenic railway line passing through the backyards of homes before it hugs the coastline all the way to the terminal station at Enoshima. To my very pleasant surprise, I came across an attractive town called Enoshima with black sand beaches and an aquarium which I visited. The aquarium contains numerous marine species found in Japanese coastal waters and includes the research findings and collections of the late Emperor Hirohito, who was himself an avid marine biologist. There was also a seal and sea lion show which I attended.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
