Yu Jinja Shrine (湯神社)

This shrine is in Dogoyuno-machi, Matsuyama. The ancient shrine was apparently built on the decree of the Keiko Emperor, the 12th emperor of Japan, and venerates the deities Onamuchinomikoto and Sukunabikonanomikoto. When the Dogo Onsen source spring was damaged by earthquake, tales say that prayers here resulted in it being restored, and now every March they hold the Yugitosai hot spring prayer festival to commemorate it.

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
