Showa no Hi
(Day of Showa)


2017
Former Emperor Hirohito's
Birthday
Besides the Western calendar we have
another way of expressing dates, which
called gengo. For example, 2007 is
"Heisei 19". Showa is also one of
the gengo like "Heisei". Gengo is
an old way of counting years
in the East. Japan has been using it,
which introduced from China,
since the 7th century, and is
chosen from the Chinese classics.
