The Japanese era system identifies a year by the combination of the era name (Gengou or Nengou) and the year number within the era. For example, A.D. 2001 is Heisei 13. Please note that two Gengou schemes were used in Parallel from 1331 to 1392 during Nanboku-chō period.

This application would be very useful if you are working with the governments, municipal offices and/or certain companies in Japan.

"Gengou" is a paid version of "Gengou Free" and is much functional than a free version. Thank you very much for your support.
