Kanp? () was a Japanese era name (,, neng?,, lit. "year name"), also known as Kamp?, after Genbun and before Enky?. This period spanned the years from February 1741 through February 1744.[1] The reigning emperor was Sakuramachi-tenn? (?).[2]

Change of era

  • 1741 Kanp? gannen (?): Based on the belief in Chinese astrology that the 58th year of the sexagenary cycle brings changes, the era name was changed to Kanp? (meaning "Keeping Lenient and Generous"). The previous era ended and the new one commenced in Genbun 6, on the 27th day of the 2nd month.
