JapaneseDate is: Japanese Heisei 32-03-11

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate

import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;

            JapaneseDate hidate
                = JapaneseDate.now();
  
            // getting JapaneseChronology
            // used in JapaneseDate
            JapaneseChronology crono
                = hidate.getChronology();
  
            // creating and initializing
            // clock object
            Clock clock
                = Clock.systemUTC();
  
            // setting clock
            clock = Clock.tick(
                clock,
                Duration.ofDays(100));
  
            // getting JapaneseDate for the
            // given clock object
            // by using dateNow() method
            JapaneseDate date
                = crono.dateNow(clock);
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println(
                "JapaneseDate is: "
