Small admission fee for the caves. Several different routes and some with low headroom. One cave they give you a handheld candle for exploring.

If you visit Enoshima, I would definitely recommend making your way to this far side of the island first and exploring the rest of the sights leisurely after that. Definitely one of the greatest attractions of Enoshima with its astounding views to the rocky shores...More

There are actually 2 caves and both are not that big. For me the highlight of the caves were already in the beginning, first of all getting here, the views were nice, and once you get in, they hand out candles so you can navigate...More

Compared to other caves I have seen, these are quite basic. Many of the statues and relics were brought in. What is most enjoyable is the path down by the water that you walk on to reach the caves. If you have access to these...More

I guess you need certain understanding of the history and the meaning of the place. The cave is created by the great nature. It's believed to be connected to Mt. Fuji. This is the origin of the Enoshima shrine. With the understanding, you can enjoy...More
