Aug.

In one corner of Enoshima’s Tatsunogaoka Shizen-no-Mori Forest stands the Bell of Ryuren. It is located on Lovers Hill, an elevated area just above Iwaya Cave No. 2. It is not only known for its breath-taking views out to Sagami Bay, but also for the legend, “The Maiden and the Five Headed Dragon”. This evil, five-headed dragon was believed to live in the sea. He fell in love with a maiden from Enoshima, and reformed his evil ways to be with her. It is said that couples who come to the Bell of Ryuren and ring it together are never to break-up. It is also popular for couples to write their names on a padlock and attach it to the fence surrounding the bell. Padlocks are sold at nearby shops and permanent markers can be borrowed.
