Have you purchased your 2015 calendars? In our house, we have the family master calendar, and one for each kid’s room, and mom and dad. The calendars I buy must have Japanese holidays well highlighted! However, we also use Cozi.com, which is a great app for tracking all family member commitments, and emails updates to all members of the family. If you have not ordered your 2015 here are some great ones you can get in the next day or so from Amazon.co.jp.

#1 This calendar will help decorate any home with Ukiyo-e prints (2,967 yen) throughout 2015. A generous size at 561 × 420 mm, with the days of the month laid out vertically along the right side of each month. Not a lot of space for writing notes, but beautiful!
#2. Plain, but practical for a family with many commitments 300 X 295 mm, simple calendar (1,080 yen). This calendar is the right size if you need a large wall calendar which everyone can access. I personally also like having prior month and next month on the same page.

#4. Although not 100% Japan focused, I do love this great daily calendar for a desk or workspace. Little inspirations each day to make you think about your future! 1,000 Places to See Before You Die (1,829 yen) is fun and engaging, just don’t wait too long to make it happen.

#7. A larger sized Japan Four Seasons (1,836 yen) at 534 x 385 mm. I am lucky to have visited six of the locations photographed in this calendar, but the remaining six are a great inspiration for 2015’s travel list. Beautiful photography on a large-scale.

This calendar is not just for kids, adults as well, will enjoy learning a Japanese word or expression a day. The good thing about this calendar is that the English words are written in roman characters and kana/hiragana, and the Japanese translations written in hiragana. If the learner knows hiragana than a word a day will be easy. Measures 216 x 300mm.
