Enoshima

One year ago I sent a postcard with an ukiyo-e from Hiroshige to Xavier Verdaguer. In that postcard I wished him the best for his birthday and proposed him to go to the island of Enoshima some time in the future.

Hiroshige Ukiyo-e

In less than a year Xavier came to Japan and we visited Enoshima together, one of my favorite places not far from Tokyo. Moreover, we had the great luck to be able to see Mount Fuji from the island, more or less as it is represented by Hiroshige in his ukiyo-e paintings. I have been many times in Enoshima but it is the first time I have been able to see mount Fuji from the island. I made the proposal, but most likely Xavier brought the good fortune.

If you want to try your luck as well and see if you can see mount Fuji from Enoshima, the easiest way to get there from Tokyo is by using the Odakyu line from Shinjuku station in the center of Tokyo; in a little bit more than an hour you will be there.
