Yu Jinja Shrine in Dogo

A shinto shrine dedicated to protecting Dogo Onsen

Enshrined at Yu Jinja (Hot Spring Holy Shrine) are Onamuchi no Mikoto (Okuninushi no Mikoto) and Sukunahikon no Mikoto, deities who figure in the origin of Dogo Hot Spring. Whenever an earthquake or some other event causes the waters of Dogo Hot Spring to stop flowing, sacred dances and prayers are offered at Yu Shrine. The precincts of the shrine offer the best overall view of Dogo Onsen Honkan.
