Shen was invited to Japan by a high official. He arrived in Nagasaki in the final month of 1731 with two students, acquiring many Japanese students after his arrival. His paintings soon became very popular, and after his 1733 return to China he continued to send paintings back to Japan. Shen had many pupils while in Japan; his most important was Kumashiro Yuhi, who in turn taught So Shiseki and Kakutei. Other artists influenced by Shen included Katsushika Hokusai, Maruyama Okyo, and Ganku.
