Kanshō (寛正?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō,?, lit. "year name") after Chōroku and before Bunshō. This period spanned from December 1460 through February 1466.[1] The reigning emperors were Go-Hanazono-tennō (後花園天皇?) and Go-Tsuchimikado-tennō (後土御門天皇?).[2]

Change of era[edit]

  • 1460 Kanshō gannen (寛正元年?): The era name was changed to mark an event or a number of events. The old era ended and a new one commenced in Chōroku 4.
