:: Winter walk in Enoshima. Part 2 ::

To continue the story of our walk on Enoshima island...


Ever since starting to notice the amazing designs of manhole covers in Japan, now a mandatory photo of the manhole cover on the island. Looks like cypress trees.


Our visit coincided with winter tulip festival at the garden and it was truly great.


To view all these vibrant colors among dull colors of winter.




The Sea Candle is what they call the lighthouse atop Enoshima Island. Since the island itself it quite elevated, we could see Landmark Tower all the way in Yokohama. Which is amazing, it's almost across entire Kanagawa prefecture.


Linear texture on the observation deck is quite modern and minimalistic.
But the sun was going down and once it was gone it got quite cold.


So it was time for some jasmine tea and a french toast in a neatly located cafe by "Miami Beach Square" in the garden.


And as we were leaving the dark grew thicker around and the lights came on. I know Xmas and New year holidays are all over, but the illumination still remains to cheer up visitors.



As we were walking away from the island, the view of the lighthouse became even more spectacular. So it was great to explore the entire island through day time and enjoy its appeal during night time.
