Convenient for exploring the areas around Enoshima, bicycle rental services are provided. Running from Kugenuma Kaigan on the shore opposite Enoshima, to the neighboring town of Chigasaki, the "Shonan Cycling Road" is approximately 8 kilometers each way. With few undulations along the route, this road is ideal even for beginners. Cyclists can get up close to and really enjoy the beauty of the Shonan Coast, and with great views of Mt. Fuji visible on clear days, this route comes highly recommended.
Situated on the shores of the Shonan Coast, Kugenuma Seaside Park boasts a location packed with nature. Inside the park, visitors can try skateboarding, BMX, inline skating, etc. The park also includes a beginner's area for those with less experience. (Rental services offer inline skates, elbow/knee/wrist guard sets, and helmets only)
Kugenuma Kaigan, located on the shore opposite Enoshima, is the birthplace of Japanese beach volleyball. In August each year, "Beach Volley Japan", which is the biggest beach volleyball competition in Japan, is held here. The venue is open to members of the public throughout the year, and free volleyballs and courts are provided. Coin showers and lockers are also available, making this the complete beach volleyball location.
Every Friday, Matsumotokan, which is located inside the Samuel Cocking Garden, offers hands-on lessons in how to make soba (buckwheat noodles).
