About an hour outside of Tokyo is one of our favourite places: Enoshima island. It’s like a tiny tropical island, with shrines and hawks and cats (so many cats!), and caves and shaved ice and it’s wonderful. I lived by sea all my life in England, and I’ve really been missing it lately – the smell and the atmosphere – so our trip to the island came as a very welcome relief from the heat and pressure of Tokyo.
Enoshima, I love ya.
Tripping over special places.
Oh, hello there! (He was actually quite a way from the sea)
Nature, at last!
Shaved ice, with strawberry syrup.
Of course we added our own padlock…
The famous bell – there’s a legend about a beautiful goddess and a dragon.
Walking back at the end of the day.
Such a gorgeous day! I’m determined to revisit Enoshima in every season, so I’ll have to wait for autumn next…
