It would be great to have the names of the events in each month somewhere on the page 🙂

agree, is it possible to print the event so it is clear for us to know which celebration represents each month?

Thanks for providing the set of posters for annual events in Japan. I am sure they will be very helpful for teachers of Japanese.
