Get on early off peak and enjoy the views. Very popular at weekends and during holidays so avoid these times. You can use suica/pasmo to travel on this line.

Bought a day pass for the ride of this railway. Enjoyed the sea view along with this. It’s really close to the local residential area. You can almost touch with a reaching hand but it’s dangerous. (Don’t do this!)

This emblematic railroad gives away a “retro” vibe, we took it to come from Kamakura to Hase station first, where the Great Buddha statue and Hasedera temple are situated. It’s a regular railway line, so it could get rather crowded, but it’s charm lays elsewhere....More

It was fun riding this little electric train between Kamakura and Hase when we visited the Great Buddha. It was relaxing and enjoyable as the train goes along the narrow passageway with houses and villages on both sides.

Take the Enoden to Hase station, and then walk; or just walk from the station westward (that's a half an hour walk)
