The Enoura site, situated on a hilly citrus grove in the Kataura district of Odawara, offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Bay of Sagami. The facility was envisioned by contemporary artist Hiroshi Sugimoto as a forum for disseminating art and culture both within Japan and to the world and comprises a gallery space, two stages, a tea house, and other features that make the entire premise into a truly magnificent landscape.
A guide familiar with the Enoura Weather Station will give you a special tour of each building and explain the various garden themes to you.
Enoura Observatory at night
Only in July and August, watch the sunset from Enoura as it sinks into the sea with the moon on the horizon. If weather conditions are good, the enchanting moon road can be seen on the night of a full moon.
