Himekuri Calendar 2021

Regular price $36.50 Unit price  per 

Description:

Along with a unique graphic design, every page of this calendar is filled with useful information in Japanese characters. There is a different Japanese proverb, the daily zodiac, fun facts about that particular date, and the weather forecast for five major cities in Japan on each individual sheet. These weather forcasts are based off 30 years of statistics. 

The purposely large blank space at the end of each page of the calendar can be used for a variety of purposes. Children can use the space for drawings and doodles, and adults can write daily plans, messages, or add their own design elements. With this calendar, tearing off each page becomes a ritual to welcome every new day. 

Text is written in black, red, or blue ink, depending on the day.

Variation:
This calendar is for 2021 (January to December).

History: 
In Japanese, "himekuri" means tear-off. Himekuri calendars are a traditional Japanese holiday gift. It is common for workplaces to gift Himekuri calendars to their employees at the end of the year. This Himekuri is unique due to its large, playful size and detailed information. 

Measurement:

10.5'' x 15.5''

Materials: 
Thin paper with waxy coating on one side, plastic binding to hang calendar from.

Care Instructions:
This paper is very thin! Be careful of denting the sides or bleeding through the paper with a thick marker or high pressure.
