Travel tips for...

Rodrigo Coelho Japan

There is too much on your list for 1 day. Enoshima alone takes half a day.
Seeing Enoshima and maybe 1 or 2 temples/shrines in Kamakura is probably all you can manage.
What is a must depends on people but generally and broadly speaking:

1. Meigetsuin is ideal for the hydrangea season, so if you’re not visiting in that season maybe you can skip it.

2. Kenchoji Temple, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Hasedera Temple, and Kotokuin are top picks.
You may want to visit Engakuji which is closer to Kitakamakura Station instead of Kenchoji which is a bit higher up in the hills (the two are quite similar to each other).

Kamakura is a city built for the Hachimangu Shrine, so I guess that is a must, but Hasedera could be the most interesting to tourists. Kotokuin has nothing else but the Great Buddha, but it is the symbol of Kamakura and quite an impressive figure
