It’s possible to stay on Enoshima at the Ebisuya (恵比寿屋; 1-4-16 Enoshima t 0466/22-4105, w www.ebisuyaryokan.jp; ¥10,001−15,000 including two meals), a good-value ryokan. Just under the bronze torii and down an alley on the left, it offers well-maintained Western and tatami rooms, plus traditional baths and excellent meals.

If you’re looking for somewhere to eat, get out at Shichirigahama Station (七里ヶ浜駅) on the Enoden line for chef Bill Granger’s first Bills restaurant to open outside Australia (1-1-1 Shichirigahama; Mon 8am–5pm, Tues–Thurs 8am–10pm, Fri–Sat 8am–11pm; t 0467/33-1778, w www.bills-jp.net).
