Travel Guide - Iwaya Caves

InformationInformation

Iwaya Caves on Enoshima Island have been eroded by the tides over thousands of years, and elevated up from the sea by repeated earthquakes. The spot is still impressive, though it has lost some of its ancient wonder through redevelopment as a tourist sight. Ando Hiroshige, Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Toyokuni, and other famous Ukiyo-e artists rendered Iwaya and Enoshima in many of their woodblock prints.
