    Benzaiten-Nakamise street is one of the best places to walk around in Japan. Benzaiten-Nakamise street has many shops and restaurants which is just like a downtown. There are many shops and you can eat different Japanese foods as a snack such as rice cracker, rice cakes, green tea, and so on. You can go inside of the restaurants and hove a seat, but also you can hand the food and walk around the street.

    4. Raw Shirasu-don

    Enoshima5

    Shirasu don is one of the most famous food in Enoshima. Shirasu is a kind of small fish and we usually eat boiled Shirasu with rice. However, since Enoshima is really near to the beach, you can eat fresh Shirasu without cooking just like sushi. There are many restaurants which serve raw-Shirasu don. You cannot eat raw Shirasu easily even in Japan, so I recommend you to try it!
