A little island/beach community in Kanagawa, which is about an hour away from downtown of Tokyo by train. The beach there is really dirty but I love the place. I used to work at the radio station by Enoshima as an assistant DJ. After the recording, I hopped on the train to go see the beach pretty often.

It’s a really big beautiful botanical park in Tokyo with a nice green house. I went there a few months ago after the big typhoon hit there, many trees were knocked down by the killing wind, even big ones. Recently some newscaster’s body was found there, but hey, it’s still an amazing park.

Amazing picnic spot in all seasons. During summer time, we usually bring in beers and food and just hang out there all day long. It’s nice to bring a speaker to listen to music, or any card games, or maybe a Frisbee. I also recommend Inokashira Park in Kichijoji as well.
