A fleeting romantic moment enjoying the sunset at Enoshima Sea Candle is the perfect way to end a day in Japan—one that will linger in your memory forever.
The lighthouse observation tower stands at the highest point of Enoshima island, which is just off the coast of Kanagawa Prefecture, about an hour outside Tokyo. It offers a panoramic view of this lovely little place, as well as Mt Fuji, the Miura Peninsula and the city of Yokohama.
Your voyage starts with a narrow road that's lined with restaurants and shops selling unique local food and souvenirs. The pathway stretches all the way from the beach to the top of the island. Along the route, there is a shrine dedicated to Benten, a goddess of the arts and wisdom.
The romantic journey eventually climaxes at Enoshima Sea Candle, where the setting sun paints the whole world in shimmering orange and pink before shyly hiding its face behind the mountains. You'll leave in awe—and never forget the moment you've just shared with your loved one.
