Enoshima, EDGY Drinking Spot


Nature-ridden, Beach with Vastness

Previously, EDGY JAPAN has introduced an urbane-version of edgy outdoor drinking spots. (Odaiba Seaside Park and Harumi Triton Square)

This time, we'll take you to a nature-ridden spot. Yes, the beach.

Shonan, located 60km south of the center Tokyo, is one of the closest beaches from Tokyo. EDGY JAPAN's favorite -- Enoshima Beach is easily accesible by train, and the treat (in terms procurement -- drink and food) is readily available.

So here it is.

View:
Local surfers, kids, dogs.

Loo:
There's one between the station and beach. Relatively clean.

Access:
Take Odakyu Enoshima Line from Shinjuku Station and get off at Katase Enoshima Station.
Take JR Tokaido Line to Fujisawa Station, transfer to Odakyu Enoshima Line and Get off at Katase Enoshima Station. 2 minutes walk to the beach.

Tips and Warning:
During the core summer time (late July to August) the beach will be filled with Uminoie (A temporary seaside facility, which offers a bar, restaurant and shower service. Sometimes DJ booth as well.) If you prefer less-commercialized, chill-out environment, avoid this period of time.

Crow warning:
When you unwrap your favorite burger or snack, don't let it sit on sand. Sometimes, a hungry crow approaches from nowhere and snatches the goodies. (In the past, EDGY JAPAN was victimized 5 times, including McDonald's only 10%-eaten File-o-Fish, Lay's Potato Chips, Kit-Kat...)


Other EDGY Outdoor Pint Spots, introduced in the past:
