The Kyoto Ryozen Gokoku Shrine ( 京都霊山護国神社 Kyōto Ryōzen Gokoku Jinja?) is a Shinto Shrine located in Kyoto, Japan. It honors the heroes of Japan, especially from the period of the Bakumatsu period and the Meiji Restoration,[1] most famously Sakamoto Ryōma and his associate Nakaoka Shintarō, who are buried side-by-side in the shrine.

The Ryozen Museum of History is next to this shrine.[1]
