The Yuge shrine was reportedly built in the Muromachi era (1336–1573). The covered bridge across the Yuge pond that surrounds the shrine is known as "Arched Bridge". The reflection of the bridge in the pond contributes to the picturesque scenery, and the whole area became a popular tourist area. The bridge serves as approach to the shrine, and the parishioners still continue the local "Himairi-shinko" custom of praying every day alternatively for good harvest. In spring plum and cherry trees blossom and in early summer irises continue to color the area of the town.
