This retro looking train runs from Kamakura station to Fujisawa station. The best part about Enoden is that you can view the ocean and the town of Kamakura while enjoying the relaxing ride. 

If you decide to explore Kamakura with Enoden, it is recommended to buy a 1 day ticket. For adult it is 600yen and 300yen for children. 

Here’s some recommendation as to which station to alright so you can explore efficiently. 

The first stop is Watazuka station (和田塚駅).

 It’s a very cozy station and a walking distance to Yuigahama beach.
