Miyoshino Jinja (Miyoshino Shrine)

The famous Warabe-uta (Japanese nursery rhyme,) “Tooryanse” is originated from the approach of this shrine. There is a monument to the “birthplace of Warabe-uta” on the shrine grounds. The monument is located in front of the Kawagoe Castle Hommaru Goten and behind the grounds of the Hatsukari Kouen Park and has been beloved by the public as the setting for the song. It is said that it was built in the beginning of the Heian Period and the existing shrine pavilion was established in 1624, which is a designated cultural property of Saitama Prefecture.
