The Jinnô-dô was a shrine in Kagoshima, dedicated to Emperor Yan / the Emperor of the Five Grains. The shrine was established by Shimazu Shigehide in 1773.

That same year, on 1773/9/20, Shigehide established a Confucian shrine on the same grounds, to which scholar-bureaucrats from the Ryûkyû Kingdom could worship, when removed from the Shiseibyô in their home country.
