2.Seafood

You can enjoy seafood here.

I recommend you to have Shirasu don here.

Shirasu don is a bowl of  baby sardines and rice.

Baby sardines are raw or boiled.

 

Many restaurants on Benzaiten Nakamise Street serve Shirasu don, you can find easily.

 

 

3.Enoshima Shrine

The observatory is not so high, about 100m.

But the height is not so important here.

On a clear day, you can see Mt. Fuji!

The last activity in Enoshima is Enoshima Iwaya Carve.

There are two  carves.

At the entrance of the first carve, you will get a Japanese lantern and go into the darkness, and you can find mysterious things…

You will find something in the second carve.

 

You will try your fortune here.

Please find by yourself what is inside of the carve…
