Enoshima, a small island near Kamakura. The island name E-no-shima is translated to picturesque island. On his way to surfing, my friend Tatsuya dropped me and some friends at Enoshima for the day. The four of us , an international group consisting of an American, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, spent the afternoon walking along the beach and exploring the island.
On the way to Enoshima I found a shark washed ashore. It was still alive so I picked it up, played with it for a while (it wanted to bite me ), and threw it back into the sea where a bunch of people were surfing.
The Enoshima surf rescue team!
Being a pleasant Saturday Enoshima was pretty crowded. Climbing up there are many temples and shrines, as well as many cats (to come in the next post)
The far end of Enoshima reminded me a lot of Okinawa. There were steep cliffs and tide pools where people were trying to catch crabs. I finally caught one and it pinched me really hard.
