Mannen-zan Seishô-ji is a Sôtô Zen temple in the Atago area of Tokyo's Minato-ku. Along with Sôsen-ji and Sengaku-ji, it is considered one of the Edo sangaji, the three chief Sôtô Zen temples in the city.

In case of a fire at the Satsuma Edo mansions, it was one of the chief locations a Ryukyuan embassy was meant to escape to.
