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)

    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:
