Origin of the name Benzaiten

弁才天の由来

As you may have noticed, it originated from "Benten-sama," a pillar of the Seven Gods of Fortune .They are often called Benzaiten, but we chose「才」instead of 「財」."In order to become a shop that lasts 50 or 100 years, we have to create a culture. What is needed to achieve this is not money, but emotion that remains in people's minds. To create a work that resonate with the customer’s mind such as in art or literature, that's what we believe and continue to walk with this name.
