Finally the end of my day tour on 19th Sep 2013 at Enoshima, Kamakura!
Enoshima is a small touristy offshore island. Unfortunately, the Iwaya caves there had to be shut down due to repairs from the typhoon. That's why the dock was empty and I felt disappointed like the guy in the photo looking down the waters...
Anyway I could still go over with the causeway bridge!
The main attraction was the Enoshima Samuel Cocking Garden.
Be careful of bees!
Great dating spot... or obaasans (aunties) chill out place.
I see butterflies!!!
and umm... a bee? a moth?
(Google replies: "hummingbird moth" or "bumblebee moth")
I bought the ticket that included entry into this award-winning tower.
Inside the lift on my way up!
Took a panoramic shot, proved that the earth is round :P
I seldom get to see an endless horizon!!! :DDDD
So I was wondering if I could walk down the stairs to exit the tower and admire the view on my way down...
...hmm... seems like no way to exit halfway...
...ok I will return upstairs to take the lift!
Back at the gardens...with cactuses!?
Cat... for sure.
Nice decorations here and there to make the place more unique and local. Not like Singapore, we tear down everything and cover them with new concrete and fresh coat of paint.
Thought I should try some seafood since Enoshima is an island, should be very fresh?
YUMMY! Should have bought more :P
I stood on the bridge on my way back to wait for sunset along with other tourists.
There were men "standing" here and there on the water to fish. I even saw fishes popping out of the water!
...and at the opposite, the moon rose. It happened to be the 15th day of the 8th month on the lunar calendar, when the moon would appear the roundest and brightest.
So this marked the end of my adventure on this nice island :)
