Walk along Enoshima-michi and Oyama-michi(Part 1:Enoshima to Tsujido)


(This course is the Enoshima to Tsujido leg of the course from Enoshima to Oyama.)

During the Edo Period, “Oyama-mairi,” or climbing the mountain to pray, was very popular among the general public.

When the population of Edo was one million, about 200,000 people visited Mt. Oyama every year.

It was common to journey to worship the goddess Benzaiten in Enoshima after worshiping the god of Mt. Oyama, so much that there is a classical rakugo story about Oyama-mairi.

This course does the opposite, going from Enoshima to Oyama.

It is difficult now to follow the exact path that was used, but this course will take you from Enoshima to Tsujido using signposts and other markers.

Enoshima has already been introduced in this model course, so this time you will start from Katase-Enoshima Station on the Odakyu Line and head towards Enoshima Station on the Enoden Line and Shonan-Enoshima Station on the Shonan Monorail. (See Map①(JPG:80KB)
