Hi Naoto,

Is there a reference to the official description or anticipation of the 
new Era?

JapaneseImperialCalendar: 134 NEWERA = 5;   (The real name can also be 
defined later; but still might be more unique as ERA_MAY_1_2019.)

Syntax style:

  - TCKJapaneseChronology:692: align the  columns of decimal values.

  - TestJapaneseChronology:61-62: space before the '}' brackets
     :89: extra space before '}'  //  inconsistent within the file but 
local consistency is good

TestUmmAlQuraChronology: there might be test dates that would not 
require more changes later when the era name changes.

Regards, Roger
