      I just came across an interesting site at
      http://www.ndl.go.jp/koyomi/e/ about the Japanese calendar and its
      history. Most of the emphasis is on the Daisho-reki calendar in wide
      use during the Edo period, but there are some good examples of
      earlier things as well. Quite informative.

      (Plus, they mention the "eejanaika!" riots of the fourth year of
      Keio/first year of Meiji. I've always particularly liked that
      subject...who hasn't had the urge to run around like a mad person
      chanting "So what?")
