Actually, for internal Japanese use, the Japanese use number of years the current emperor has ruled. I believe we are now in Heisei 14. In Taiwan, you use the number of years since the founding of the Republic of China in 1911. Of course, when dealing with the rest of the world you revert to 2002. Kou
