Ryugu Shrine is located at Nagasaki-bana Cape, the southernmost point of Satsuma peninsula.

Nagasaki-bana Cape is said to be the birthplace of the legend of Urashima Taro who saved a turtle,

it took him to Ryugu-jo (the Palace of the Dragon as a token of it’s gratitude). Sea turtles come

to lay eggs on the beach near this place, and local people love them as the protective god of the sea.

The new worship hall of the shrine was built in 2011. The name of popular limited express for

sightseeing “Ibusuki-tamate-bako” is associated with the legend of Urashima Taro. Tamate-bako

is a box Otohime gave to Urashima Taro. This shrine is becoming popular as a power spot of

matchmaking and good fortune in love. There are shells in a big pot. It is said that if you write

your wish on a shell and dedicate it, your wish will be granted.
