Menuma Shōdenzan is known to be one of Japan’s three Shōten and is said to bring success, health to the family, fortune, and scholarly achievements, and many other benefits such as matrimony.
In 2012, the main shrine of Menuma Shōdenzan “Kangiin Shōtendou” was designated as a national treasure thanks to its highly skilled carvings, modern decorative architecture, and because it was built from donations by the public. Throughout the year, events such as the annual grand festival and Setsubun festivals take place during the spring and autumn.
