The Tayama Calendar was conceived as a guide to agricultural management in order to save farmers amid repeated famine in the middle of the Edo period.
The calendar is constructed with pictures so that even people who can not read and write can understand it, and it is expressed with all familiar things, such as agricultural tools, living tools, and animals of the Zodiac.
It was handwritten at first, but it was appreciated and it became woody after increasing demand.
