    Mr. Joshin Han

    Descending beautiful Mt. Oyama by cable car,
    you’ll be treated to a fantastic view of
    Sagami Bay. And on the lovely island of Enoshima, you can see as
    far as Mt. Fuji on a clear day!

    Ms. Erika Niizawa

    Lose yourself in rich nature while you enjoy
    the tofu dishes which are well-known in Oyama,
    seafood lunch in Enoshima and popular sweets.
    I recommend these model courses for "girls' travel".

  • PROFILE

    Mr. Sanshiro Ando

    Enoshima and Oyama are easily accessible from
    the city, and provide lots of scenic spots to show
    off on SNS. Be sure to check them out!
