Urashima Shrine Ine Kyoto

Urashima Shrine

Urashima Shrine was built in 825 and is dedicated to Urashima Taro as the Great Tsutsukawa Myojin.

As you may guess from the Name, the shrine is very famous for its connection with the legend of Urashima, and various treasures of the legend are kept in the archive room in the precincts of the shrine, including a ball-shaped box said to have been brought back from the Dragon’s Palace and the Urashima Myojin picture scroll (an important cultural asset).
