The stunning Kanagawa coastline is often overshadowed by the popular tourist destinations nearby such as Kamakura and Yokohama, but the Miura Peninsula, located just south of Yokohama, has plenty of great spots which are worth a visit. In particular, the four islands of Enoshima, Hakkeijima, Sarushima and Jogashima are easily accessible from Tokyo and offer numerous seaside activities, outdoor excursions and plenty of fresh seafood.
Direct trains run from Yokohama Station to the Kanagawa coast, and from there it’s an easy walk across a bridge or a short ferry ride to the islands. Some of the tourist destinations can be paired up into one convenient trip, but we recommend saving islands like Enoshima and Jogashima for individual day trips, as they take a bit longer to get to.
RECOMMENDED: More day trips from Tokyo
