This shrine has a long history, going back to the time when Yugawara was developed by Shigeyuki Kaganosuke Futami and others.
It is said that when Yoritomo Minamoto raised an army in Izu, Sanehira Jiro Doi, the head of the powerful local clan, prayed for his master Yoritomo's victory and offered the sword he carried at his waist to the shrine.
The Myojin-no-kusunoki camphor tree spreads its branches by the side of the prefectural road. This tree is estimated to be over 800 years old and has a root circumference of 15.6 meters. An inner section of the trunk has decayed and been reinforced with concrete, which has been used to house a guardian deity.

From Yugawara Station, take the bus headed to Okuyugawara or Fudo-Taki for about 5 minutes
The shrine is next to the Gosho Jinja bus stop
