2014 is the "Year of the Horse" according to the Chinese and Japanese Calendars, but this label is from Taisho 3 (i.e.1914), and this year was "Year of the Tiger"

This Japanese label (which was made exactly 100 years ago)
shows the Chinese/Japanese Calendars.

The text at the botom columns mentions the 12 monthes of the year.
