Japan and China have a long history of exchange. The countries share many cultural traditions,¬†and historically Japan celebrated Lunar New Year, however during the Meiji Era (late 19th-early 20th c.)¬†the Japanese government moved towards Westernization¬†by¬†adopting the Gregorian calendar (with the New Year beginning on January 1).
