Enoshima Iwaya Caves, Fujisawa

3.2
#5 of 11 in Parks in Fujisawa
Elevated high above the sea that eroded them thanks to multiple earthquakes, Enoshima Iwaya Caves first appeared in recorded history in the sixth century. In the 1970s, the caves were precarious and closed off due to general instability, but in 1993 the city cemented them and furnished them with handrails, giving visitors an opportunity for comfortable excursions underground. Inside you'll witness plastic models and statues, atmospheric lights, and strange cave formations. One of the tunnels is even said to lead all the way to the ice caves near Mt. Fuji. Put Enoshima Iwaya Caves into our Fujisawa day trip site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Admission is 500 yen is required. Or stop a moment and thought, but the look was right. Inside the cave and many Buddha images enshrined, there was a statue of Kobo Daishi. One cave has a candle that haunts the ceilings low over head unlikely to hit now. Shrine is located at the back of the second cave, here is with the Enoshima shrine birthplace. It was fun without prior knowledge that the cave.

  • Had never went but I know from when I was a kid, Enoshima Iwaya. On the other side of Enoshima and quite an adventure by the way. They do not know where. Summer is cool, looks good.

  • Not many can enter the area, as the cave itself might not enjoy too much. But the candle for me in a way I liked, or anything else in a dead end "this cave Fuji leads to a" written and romance come soon.
