Fireworks never stop being amazing, right? No matter how old you get, the ooh’s and ah’s still seem to come out on their own. I hope this is something that never changes. Stopping to enjoy something spectacular, but in many ways spectacularly simple at the same time. Just sit back and enjoy.
Earlier this month, Craig and I made our way to Enoshima Island, home of Enoshima Island Spa (Enospa), to spend the evening exploring the island and enjoying the Fujisawa Enoshima Fireworks Festival. We were invited to watch the show from the outdoor food court at Enospa and with the clear blue skies, it was an absolutely perfect evening for fireworks. The highly efficient train system in Japan will always top my list of things I’ve loved about living here — we were able to escape to somewhere so completely different from Tokyo in so little time and reminded once again of the beauty of this country. We even got a peak at Mt. Fuji, which is visible from Enospa (especially the outdoor pool area).
Enoshima Island Spa is quite picturesque itself, situated on this small island less than 90 minutes from Tokyo. The spa offers hot springs, saunas, health consultations and a range of skincare treatments at Beng Teng Spa. They also offer massages at Yumemi Shiatsu Salon.
I couldn’t believe how many people came out to enjoy the show, but once it got started, it wasn’t hard to see why. It was a wonderful way to end the summer and welcome autumn.
