Try this at a command-prompt:

$ python -m calendar -L ja_JP --encoding utf8

The result is a crash:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/", line 162, in _run_module_as_main
    "__main__", fname, loader, pkg_name)

  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/", line 703, in main
    result = result.encode(options.encoding)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe6 in position 49: ordinal not in range(128)

The reason is because the TimeEncoding class doesn't properly return the encoding it should use, so 'encoding' ends up being None in "with TimeEncoding(self.locale) as encoding:" lines.

Trivial patch:

Thank you for report and suggestion, Robert Xiao. The patch should be a little more complex however.

And here is an updated test for 3.x.

They moved from issue13539 which I have closed as a duplicate.
