The calendars displayed feature various themes related to the Japanese traditional and contemporary arts, sports, automobiles, nature, cultural heritage, architecture and so on. Since every calendar is a piece of art, the Japan Calendar Association has tried their best to attract viewers through different subjects and mediums. The exhibition not only gave a picture of the socio- cultural development of Japan spread over centuries, but also exhibits the aesthetic features of Japanese printing technology.
Most of the calendars displayed were produced by private Japanese companies, and most of them were printed on recycled paper which is a fine example of Japan’s efforts to be eco-friendly.
