Enoshima Sea Candle, Fujisawa

(4.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Take a lift or climb the spiraling stairs to the top of the 40 m (131.2 ft) Enoshima Sea Candle, where you'll experience breathtaking 360 degree vistas across the bay and city. On a clear day you'll be afforded some of the best views of Mt. Fuji available, with its snow-capped, conical shape visible in the haze of the day. Not only a viewpoint, the structure still functions as a lighthouse, as well as supporting antennas providing cell phone signals. Consider a nighttime visit; aside from being recognized as the 6th best "Japan Heritage Night View," the structure lights up brilliantly, powered by solar energy collected throughout the day. Put Enoshima Sea Candle into our Fujisawa tour planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Fujisawa.

  • My sons and I loved the views from the top. Well worth the ¥500. Was windy so we couldn't climb the stairs up the lighthouse so we settled for the elevator.  more »
  • 想360度观景的唯一选择,需要买票,电梯只有一部,如果人多,可能会排较长时间的队。如果不想等待,徒步登塔也是可以的,不过看起来不轻松。能不能眺望富士山,就要看天气了。  more »
  • That are illuminated in different colors to each season, a mysterious Purple is this season. Because the Enoshima in the highest position, overlooking the whole Enoshima. It was very nice to the Enoshima bridge.

  • Cheap place too see. Beautiful few of the bay and City. Take good walking shoes. Thousands of steps. Well worth the climb and exercise.
  • Best observation deck in Kanto. A beautiful view of the Shonan coast, the ocean, the mountains including Mt. Fuji on a clear day, and of course the island itself. Much better than the city towers where every direction gives you the same view.
  • One of the best observation deck . Since its in an island you get a perfect view of both land and sea. If you are lucky like us, you could have breathtaking view of Mt Fuji. It has two levels( indoor n outdoor) , so you could go up on any day.
  • When the weather cooperates, it's worth to go up the tower for the view. There is the indoor level for cooler days, and the top observation level where you can enjoy the wind. You will be able to see the city of Fujisawa on one end, and the Pacific on the other.
  • from the top of this tower you can see all the island and the Shonan area. Sunset time is amazing here.
