In 1084,Minamotonoyoshikuni who is the ancestor of Ashikaga City, decided it as a `Souchinju` (local Shinto deity), and since then it is a shrine that has been worshiped by castle owners and citizens.
`Yagumo Jinjya` is appeared in the lyrics of Chisato Moritaka "Watarasebashi" released in 1993.
The shrine was destroyed by fire in 2012, but was rebuilt in 2017, taking over the demolished shrine buildings that come along with Ise Jingu's Shikinen Sengu.
