Parameter: This method takes the object of the clock on the basis of which Japanese date is going to be formed.

Return Value: This method returns the current Japanese date according to the Japanese calendar system from the specified clock.

Below are the examples to illustrate the now() method:



Example 1:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate now() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // Creating and initializing clock
            Clock clock = Clock.systemUTC();
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // JapaneseDate Object
            JapaneseDate hidate
                = JapaneseDate.now(clock);
  
            // Display the result
            System.out.println("JapaneseDate: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
JapaneseDate: Japanese Heisei 32-03-23

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate now() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // Creating and initializing clock
            Clock clock = Clock.systemDefaultZone();
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // JapaneseDate Object
            JapaneseDate hidate
                = JapaneseDate.now(clock);
  
            // Display the result
            System.out.println("JapaneseDate: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
