300: Enoshima railway

This historical line, which opened as an electric railway in 1902, joins the cities of Kamakura and Fujisawa, providing local access to the tiny resort island of Enoshima and the great Kamakura statue of Buddha (actually three stations from Kamakura). One reason for its preservation may be a number of TV dramas featuring the line.
