Ube Jinja (宇倍神社 Ube-jinja?) is a Shinto shrine in Tottori, Tottori Prefecture, Japan.[1]

History[edit]

Ube was designated as the chief Shinto shrine (ichinomiya) for the former Inaba province. [2]

From 1871 through 1946, Ube was officially designated one of the Kokuhei Chūsha (国幣中社?), meaning that it stood in the second rank of national government supported shrines.
