Overview of Japanese Almanacs in pdf-format.

Note: You can download the files and use a pdf viewer. You can see it as a two page view so the whole January is in one view. With adobe acrobat you can select : two page view - go to page display and mark two page view.(two upp). And then the front page is single - you most mark Show front page under two up.  In the document it is defined as being a document with binding at the right edge (Japanese books). This is important to show the pages in the correct order on the screen.  We are used to have documents with binding at left edge.

If you have problems with the view then read the information above or read your pdf-viewer manual and try.
