Goryo Shrine is an ancient temple located at the foot of a mountain, about a 5-minute walk from Hase Station on the Enoshima Electric Railway Line. The shrine dates back to the late Heian period (794-1185), and within its precincts are small shrines dedicated to various deities and a 400-year-old sacred tree. The shrine is also famous as a railroad spot, with the Enoden train tracks running right in front of the torii gate, and in June visitors can enjoy a rare collaboration between the hydrangeas that color the shrine grounds and the green Enoden train cars.
The Shonan area stretches along the coast of Sagami Bay in Kanagawa Prefecture. It is blessed with scenic spots such as the ocean, which attracts surfers, and the view points from which one can view Mt. Fuji. Among them, Enoshima Island, located just off the Shonan coast, has long been a popular vacation spot with its historic shrines and temples. The Enoshima Electric Railway, which runs along the seashore and bears the island's name, is a popular sightseeing course that offers a tour of the famous sights and seafood delicacies.
