The Japanese Calendar

The Japanese Calendar from The Diet Library

This, then, traces the history of the Japanese calendar based on the National Diet Library's calendar collection, with special focus on the Daisho-reki calendar consisting of months, some with 30 days, others with 29, which was used in the Edo period (1603 to 1867). It also includes notes on how to better appreciate it.
