Solid Gold Calendar on Display in Tokyo Shop
A calendar for 2008 made of pure gold was unveiled at Tanaka Kikinzoku Jewelry K.K.'s flagship store in Tokyo's Ginza district Thursday.
Tanaka Kikinzoku will begin taking orders for the ¥30 million ($257,000) calendar on Friday. Last year, it sold a similar 2007 calendar for ¥20.07 million ($171,000).
The calendar measures 67 cm by 42 cm and weighs about 6 kg. On the back of the calendar are printed images from the picture scroll of the "Tale of Genji," a classic Japanese literary work that marks its 1,000th anniversary next year.
