Where to stay in Fujisawa

Most tourists only pass through the city of Fujisawa on the way to its popular Enoshima island, where accommodation options include a number of hotels, inns, and traditional Japanese ryokans. Most of the island's lodgings lie beachside or scattered around the waterfront area. If you choose to stay in Fujisawa proper, you'll find several mid-range and budget friendly hotels situated near the railway station.

  • Enoshima is a must to visit. This is a wonderful island (accessible by foot), just 1h30 from Tokyo center. On a Sunny day, just go there if you have time to spare.
  • Huge, beautiful shrine complex. Has a rather unique feel to it. Interesting statues.
  • Beautiful shrine up the mountainside of Enoshima. A small walk up a few long staircases (or pay for the escalator), but it's a lovely place to see. You can pay respects to Benten, diety of the sea. She is important for many lovers looking for marriage and also for travelers. Free entrance to the outside area.
  • The main shrine building of Enoshima Shrine. I found no English description about the shrine. For me, it's just like another shrine.
  • Excellent place for a day trip that has many restaurants and incredible views of mt Fuji, the ocean, and enoshima. I highly recommend this place for a great cultural and spiritual experience!
