Its origins date back to the middle of the 16th century, when it was said that a number of local fishermen caught the body of a god in their net, and consecutively started worshipping it. The current shrine was said to have been rebuilt by Yoshiatsu Miura, the head of the Sagami Miura Clan. The celebrated god here, Jurojin, is also known as "Shiroki Myojin" or white-haired god, and through his blessings the Misaki Port flourished; he has long been worshipped in the area as the god of navigational safety. The stone in front of the main hall is an old stone anchor, which is offered to the shrine. The forest encompassing the shrine is called "Koajiro no Mori" (Forest of Koajiro), a nature preserve with a number of precious natural resources within it. It is also called a "miracle forest."
