I took the Enoden from Kamakura Station and walked around Enoshima. At the end of the day, be impressed by the view of the Shonan Sea dyed in the sunset and Mt. Fuji! Nearby beaches such as Shichirigahama and Yuigahama are crowded with surfers, and many people are equipped with hooks to hook surfboards on bicycles and scooters. I got a train on Enoshima Electric Railway from Kamakura and walked around Enoshima island. At end of the day, you can enjoy beautiful twilight sight of Mt. Fuji and sea of Shounan (Southern Kanagawa). Many people enjoy surfing at Shichirigahama or Yuigahama beach and they equip luggage hook on their bicycle or scooter.

🌊 Do you know what a pillbox is? 🌊 "Pillbox" means "dot or point" in Russian, and is a small defensive position made of concrete or other materials to protect a militarily important base. Many pillboxes on the Pacific coast of Taiki Town were built at the end of the Pacific War in preparation for the landing of U.S. troops on the mainland, but they were never used and the war ended. Many of them still exist because they are made of solid concrete, etc., and although they have been eroded by waves, rain and wind, they still remain as historically valuable war ruins. Some are by the sea, some are half buried in the sand, some are inland, and so on. The pillbox, which is called "Asahihama's pillbox" and is surrounded by windbreaks, is maintained and can be visited, so please go there. ⚠️ There are many places around the pillbox that have bad roads, such as sandy beaches, so please be careful when going by car.
