( January 2019)

Some changes occur in Japan this year. It is because a present emperor abdicates.
The Emperor is going to abdicate, and the crown prince, who is his older son, is going to be a new Emperor. Japan has the custom that the name of an era change when the emperor changes. A new era name is not announced till then. Only the Christian era is displayed in the calendar and the notebooks now.
The birthday of the Emperor becomes national holiday. The national holiday will increase.
So, some things become new in Japan.

What's going on in your town?
I'm so glad if my pages can tell you something about Japan.
