The Kuzuryu Shrine is a sub-shrine of the Hakone Shrine, dedicated to the nine-headed dragon god. The Japanese Shinto Shrine was known for good luck for the visiting generals, 1200 years from now. There are three kami or spirits that are worshipped in this shrine, collectively known as Hakone Okami.
