Shonan Monorail

    A few years ago I wanted to ride the Shonan Monorail but the stations weren’t accessible.

    Apparently they renovated 2 years ago and added elevators and accessible toilets.

    Not every station is accessible but the end stations (Ofuna and Shonan Enoshima) are – and they give you the longest ride. Also, unless you live near one of the other stations, there really is no point to get off there.

    The monorail is neat because it has a number of ups and downs, turns and going through tunnels. It is a bit like a roller coaster!

    Here is a video:

    行きたい!My last time in the Tokyo area, I went to Kamakura and then took the sea-side train to Enoshima, which was really nice. I wanted to see Mount Fuji from the beach, but the day was not clear enough. Nevertheless, I have great memories from that day.

    I think that taking the monorail to Enoshima and then the sea side train to Kamakura could be a great one-day (or half a day depending on what you plan to visit) excursion from either Tokyo or Yokohama.

    Thanks for the info, Josh!
