Japanese art objects, mainly Ukiyo-e of the 19th century often have date stamps that are based on the Japanese calendar. You might find expressions like Meiji 10. There are the Edo, Meiji, Taisho, Showa and Heisei periods. Starting with Meiji, the Japanese calendar period changed when the Japanese Emperor passed away.
