Does Japan still use any alternate calendar?

There is a feature request about bringing back Japanese calendar. But to my knowledge Japan has switched to the Gregorian calendar completely. Thanks

Thanks for caring Japan-related issues!

Yes, your understanding is correct. Japan has switched to Gregorian calendar 150 years ago. Traditional Japanese calender is called “legacy calendar” (旧暦) and I guess only some historians use it nowadays.
I don’t think you have to bring back it to KDE’s calender system.
